Tulsa Police are looking for the man who robbed a west Tulsa pharmacy late Thursday morning. Police say the suspect held a gun to a customer's neck and forced the customer, the pharmacy technician and the pharmacist to the back of the business at 4120 South 25th West Avenue. Police say the suspect had a note that demanded specific drugs. The pharmacist complied and the robber left.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker say one thing did stand out about the suspect. "He seemed to be gentle with the people, other than he demanded that they comply. He even asked if they are okay after it was all said and done."

The robber was about 5’ 7” tall and about 180 pounds. The suspect was dressed all in black with a coat and rainjacket over it and smelled of gasoline.

Tulsa Police are looking into the possibility that this robbery may be connected to other recent robberies where the suspect also demanded specific drugs.
