Police are looking for two men who shoved a Bellerose pharmacy employee to the ground while trying to rob the store.

At 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, June 27, two unknown men entered the Pharmo Drug Store located at 248-15 Union Turnpike. Once they were inside, the first suspect engaged with the 34-year-old female employee while the second suspect forced his way behind the counter.
