TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) -

Police in Texarkana are looking for the man who robbed a Pleasant Grove pharmacy at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon.

It happened around 1:45 p.m. at the Pleasant Grove Pharmacy in the 3300 block of Richmond Road.

Witnesses told officers on the scene that a white male armed with a handgun and wearing a bandana over his face came into the pharmacy, ordered an employee to the floor and headed to the area where the pharmaceuticals are kept.

That employee reportedly tried to escape, when the man allegedly caught her and dragged her back inside, before taking off on foot.

It's not clear whether he escaped with any stolen items.

No one was hurt.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen the suspect in the area or has information about the case to call Texarkana Crime Stoppers at 903-793-STOP.
