State police are seeking a man who robbed the Lion Pharmacy in Red Lion at knifepoint on Wednesday afternoon.

A man who has still yet to be identified walked into the pharmacy at 10 W. Broadway around 12:45 p.m., pulled out a knife and demanded prescription drugs, according to a news release from state police.

The employees handed over an undisclosed amount of drugs to the robber, who then left, fleeing south from the pharmacy, the release said.

The robber is described as a white man likely in his 30s, about 6 feet tall, with a medium or heavy build. The release describes him as unshaven, with dark, receding hair.

Police say the man was wearing camouflage-pattern pants and a "dark jacket with noticeable white blotches on the back."

Anyone with information is asked to call state police at 418-1011 or text them at 418-8829.
