Police are looking two individuals wanted in connection with an attempted robbery of a drug store near 248th Street and Union Turnpike.

On June 27, the two male suspects entered Pharmo Drug Store in Glen Oaks around 1 p.m., according to authorities.

While one man distracted the 34-year-old woman working behind the counter, the second man came around to the side and forced her to the ground, police said.

The suspects then demanded her to open the medicine cabinet for them, but they were unable to gain access, police said, and left the store empty-handed.

Authorities said the victim was left unharmed.
