Knoxville police are looking for a suspect they say robbed an East Knoxville CVS Pharmacy Saturday night.

KPD responded to the call at 4325 Asheville Highway around 7:15 p.m.

According to a statement from a store manager, the suspect jumped over the counter, pointed a handgun at her, and demanded money. KPD says a customer inside the store called 911 during the incident. That customer provided a description of the suspect to police, as well as the direction the suspect fled from the store.

As soon as officers arrived, they set up a perimeter around the store and conducted a K-9 search.

Police were unable to locate the suspect, who fled the scene with an undetermined amount of cash.
