The man, described as a white man in his 30s, entered the Rite Aid pharmacy at 9700 N. Division Street around 7:50 p.m., a news release from Spokane Police Department said.

He pulled a ski-style mask over his face and handed the pharmacist a note demanding narcotics. He was given an unknown amount of prescription narcotics. He then ordered the pharmacist to the ground before leaving the store. Police do not know which direction he went.

He was dressed all in black and wore black and white shoes with red on the sole.
