The NYPD is searching for an individual in connection with a robbery that took place last month at a pharmacy in Rego Park.

Authorities say that at approximately 2:45 p.m. on Oct. 24, two unidentified males entered Top Choice Pharmacy, located at 97-06 Queens Blvd., and went behind the counter while holding a 60-year-old male employee by the neck and brandishing pepper spray.

The men then took a bottle of promethazine and fled on foot south on 64th Road to Saunders Road, then headed west on 63rd Drive, police said.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the robbery, according to authorities.

Police described one suspect as being approximately 18 to 20 years old with a light complexion. He was last seen wearing a black hooded gray sweatshirt and black sneakers.

The second suspect is also believed to be approximately 18 to 20 years old with a medium complexion. He was last seen wearing all black clothing, police said.
