The men entered Lominick’s Pharmacy, 839 Richland Ave., about 12:15 p.m. and demanded narcotic medicine from the clerk. Police said the men produced what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun before fleeing with the medicine.

One robber was described as black, about 6 feet tall, weighing 250 pounds and wearing a brown jacket with a yellow stripe; the other was Hispanic, nearly 6 feet tall, weighing 180 pounds, wearing a gray jacket and carrying a backpack.
