TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

Police are looking for the man who robbed a west Toledo pharmacy Monday night.

The robbery occurred at the Rite Aid on West Sylvania Avenue around 11 p.m. 

Police say the man entered the store wearing a surgical mask and walking with a cane.

Police say the man handed one of the employees a note demanding all the Percocet while taping his waist as though he had a gun. 

The employee gave the man a bag with two bottles of Percocet and three bottles of Oxycodone, according to police.

Before he left the store, police said the man threatened to kill a second employee and showed her a black handgun in his waistband. 

Police say the bottles of Oxycodone had tracking devices in them and were recovered near Braniegh Drive.

The man is described as a black male wearing a surgical mask, blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, grey sweat pants and walking with a cane at the time of the robbery.
