SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Scottsdale police were looking for a man they said robbed two pharmacies of Oxycodone on Sunday.

The suspect walked into a Walgreen's Pharmacy at 7011 E. Shea Blvd. about 4:30 p.m., approached the pharmacist, pulled a handgun and demanded the narcotics, according to a Scottsdale Police Department report.

He fled on foot to the south with the drugs and about 30 minutes later, walked into a CVS Pharmacy at 10160 E. Bell Rd., where he also took pills at gunpoint, according to the report.

No one was injured in either incident, according to the report.

The suspect is described as Hispanic or white, in his early 30s, between 5'8" and 6'3" tall, 220 pounds and unshaven. He was wearing a black or gray sweatshirt with a hood, dark shorts with white stripes and white shoes.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the robberies is asked to call Scottsdale police.
