Portland police have released photos of a man who robbed a CVS pharmacy at knifepoint of an undisclosed amount of money.

The CVS pharmacy at 449 Forest Ave. was robbed Thursday evening.

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 ran out the door. No injuries were reported.

Viola said the suspect was wearing several layers of clothing, making an accurate description of him difficult.
