AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department is asking for help in finding two men accused of trying to rob a pharmacy of opioids at gunpoint in September.

The robbery happened Sept. 2 just before 2:15 p.m. at the Rite Care Pharmacy, located in the 3000 block of Guadalupe Street.

The two suspects went into the store. One stood by the door while the other jumped over counter into the work area, APD said. The man who jumped the counter pulled out a gun and made workers lie face down on the floor while demanding opioids.

The two men then fled after they found out the pharmacy didn’t carry them, APD said. No one was hurt.

Suspect 1: 20-25 year old white man between 6′ and 6’2″ with a slender build, last seen wearing a black hoodie with an orange stripe running down each art and across the chest, black track pants with a Nike swoop on the left lower leg and white high-top shoes
