Police are looking for two men with pepper spray who robbed a drug store in Rego Park last week.

The suspects allegedly entered Top Choice Pharmacy, located at 97-06 Queens Blvd., at around 2:45 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24 and assaulted a 60-year-old male employee who was behind the counter. The men, who brandished pepper spray, grabbed the employee by the neck.

The suspects, according to police, then took a bottle of promethazine and fled on foot south on 64th Road to Saunders Road, then west on 63 Drive on Saunders Street.

Promethazine is typically taken to prevent or treat nausea related to conditions such as motion sickness and pregnancy.
