Just before 7 pm Friday evening a male and a female walked into the St George Pharmacy located at 5295 Lakeshore Road in Burlington and headed for the rear of the drugstore.

The male is reported to have been wearing a mask.

When the pharmacist began interacting with the male, (those are the words in the police report) the bandit pulled up his shirt to reveal his waistband.

The pharmacist quickly fled outside.

The male and the female suspects did the same thing – they were last seen fleeing northbound on Kenwood Avenue. No injuries were sustained during the robbery.

The male suspect is described as white, approximately 5’6”, thin, wearing a black mask, red/orange t-shirt and black pants.

The female is described as white, approximately 5”7’, wearing black tights, a black Columbia winter jacket and black toque.
