The CVS drugstore at 449 Forest Ave. in Portland was robbed of a “small amount” of cash Friday night, Portland police said.

Police said a man entered the store shortly after 7 p.m. and handed a note to a cashier demanding money. Police said no weapon was displayed or mentioned in the note and no one was hurt.

After the man received the money, he ran from the store, police said.

Police said the robber is a black man, 30 to 40 years old, wearing a dark hoodie, a dark green jacket and sunglasses.

Police said the robbery was captured on a video surveillance camera and they expect to release still photos from that tape Saturday.
