A pharmacy in San Francisco's Marina district and another in the Sunset district were robbed of prescription medication by a man with a gun on Thursday, according to police.
The first robbery was reported at about 7:20 a.m. Thursday at a Walgreens pharmacy in the Marina District.
A suspect, described as an Asian man between the age of 20 and 40, entered the pharmacy located in the 3200 block of Divisadero Street near Lombard Street.
He approached the pharmacy counter with a silver handgun and demanded drugs from the clerk, according to police.
The pharmacy clerk complied and gave the suspect four bottles of medication. The suspect then fled from the store on foot.
The second robbery occurred at about 4:15 p.m. on Thursday in the city's Central Sunset district, police said.
In that robbery, the suspect, also described as an Asian male and estimated to be in his 20s or 30s, entered Greenhouse Pharmacy in the 1500 block of Noriega Street wearing a backpack.
The owner of the pharmacy, Clarence Yuk, said he heard pills clinking in their bottles inside the man's backpack as he entered the store.
Yuk's wife was working behind the counter when the man brandished a handgun at her.
The suspect was dressed in black and had most of his face covered, Yuk said.
The suspect ordered the owner's wife to hand over whatever supply of the drug hydrocodone that the pharmacy had in stock, Yuk said.
After the clerk gave him the drugs, the suspect fled the store on foot.
Yuk said there is a camera in the store but that it wasn't plugged in at the time of the robbery.
He said this is the first time in 20 years that the pharmacy has been robbed and that it was all was quite "exciting."
