EAST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police in East Hartford are searching for the man investigators said is responsible for an armed robbery at a pharmacy Friday night.

An unidentified man entered the CVS Pharmacy, which is located at 16 Main St., around 7:30 p.m. and according to police, demanded all the oxycodone and oxycontin in the store.

Police said the man had a black handgun, which was "tucked inside his waistband."

The man left the store with an "undetermined amount of prescribed narcotics," police said.

Police said the suspect may have fled in an older model four-door car because the vehicle went over the curb and had no headlights on.

Investigators are also looking for a woman, who was standing near the front door of CVS Pharmacy, because she may have information about the robbery and suspect.

The suspect is being described as a white man, who is described as between 5'8" to 5'10" with a "medium to large build."

At the robbery, the suspect  was wearing a black long thermal sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and a dark-colored baseball cap.

It is unclear if this robbery is connected to other robberies that were similar in nature.

Anyone with any information about the robbery is asked to call the East Hartford Police Department at 860-528-4401.
