A man entered Family Pharmacy on Friday with a gun and demanded prescription pain killers, according to police.
The pharmacist, at the 45-60 43rd Street establishment, complied with the suspect’s demand and handed over three bottles of drugs, including a bottle of Oxycodone, according to police. No one was hurt in the incident.
The suspect has been described as a white male, 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds.
Family Pharmacy is the second Sunnyside drug store to be robbed at gunpoint in the past week. On Tuesday, Greenpoint Pharmacy, located just blocks away, was held up for prescriptions drugs.
Family Pharmacy was also robbed a year ago for drugs.
