Police are looking for two men who robbed a Queens Village pharmacy at gunpoint and took off with prescription medications.

According to police, at 5:05 a.m. on March 11, two unknown men wearing masks and gloves entered a CVS, located at 219-39 89th Ave., and encountered a 21-year-old male employee. After asking where the store’s pharmacy was, one of the suspects took the employee’s cellphone so he couldn’t call 911.

Once they reached the pharmacy, one of the suspects put a gun to the pharmacist’s head and demanded that he open the safe. The pharmacist complied, and the suspects took a large quantity of prescription pills.

The suspects fled the scene with an undetermined amount of prescription medications and two iPhones. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

The incident was reported to the 105th Precinct, who tweeted out photos of the suspects:

Anyone with information about the incident can contact the Queens Robbery Squad at 718-321-2283.

Four days earlier, a Walgreens in South Ozone Park was robbed at gunpoint by two men who took off with an undetermined amount of prescription pills. At this time, it is unknown if there is a connection between the two robberies.
