The CVS pharmacy at 449 Forest Ave. was robbed at knifepoint Thursday evening, according to Portland police.

Sgt. Jeff Viola said a white man who was wearing a scarf over his face entered the store around 6:13 p.m. and demanded cash from the clerk while showing a knife.

The employee handed over an undisclosed amount of cash to the robber, who turned and fled out the door. No injuries were reported.

Viola said it was difficult to describe the suspect, who was wearing several layers of clothing. Portland police plan to release surveillance video of the robbery on Friday.
