CONCORD A man with an assault rifle robbed a pharmacy of prescription narcotics this afternoon before getting into a waiting minivan and escaping, police said.

The robbery took place shortly before 4 p.m. at the Oak Grove Pharmacy in the 700 block of Oak Grove Road, near the corner of Treat Boulevard, Concord police Cpl. Darryl Holcombe said.

The robber was a white man, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall. He wore a ski mask over his face, black pants and a gray hooded sweatshirt. He demanded and was given narcotics, which were reported to be OxyContin.

He then ran outside and got into a waiting older-model white Ford minivan, driven by a woman with black hair.

No customers or employees at the pharmacy were hurt.

Anyone with information about the crime can call police at 925-671-3241.

That's the problem. May possibly have been something different like an airsoft.
