A man who robbed a Walgreens pharmacy last week has eluded police, and detectives are asking for the public's help in the case.

The robbery happened late Thursday at 4309 Wake Forest Road when the man came into the store with a handgun. No one was hurt, police said.

Police described the suspect as a thin Hispanic or black man who was last seen wearing a black hoodie, a red bandana and Converse sneakers.

Detectives asked people who believe they might be able to identify the man or who have any other information that might help in the case to call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at 919-834-HELP (4357) or visit the organization’s website for text and email reporting options.
