Police are on the hunt for a man who used a weapon to threaten staff during a robbery at an Aberdeen pharmacy.
Officers were called to the city’s Lewis Road Pharmacy in Sheddocksley at 4.45pm yesterday after staff alerted them to the raid.
A man entered the shop, presented a weapon and made off with a small quantity of medication.
The suspect is described as being 6ft tall and aged between 20 and 30-years-old.
He was said to have been wearing a black nylon bomber jacket with a hooded top, dark blue skinny jeans, black gloves and black shoes.
Detective Inspector Stewart Drummond said: “The staff members in the shop were understandably shocked following this incident but were thankfully not injured.
“A full investigation is under way, including speaking to witnesses and reviewing CCTV.
“We are appealing for anyone who was in the Lewis Road area and who could have seen the man either before the time of the robbery or after to come forward and speak to us to assist us with our investigation.”
