Police in Somerset County are seeking the public’s help identifying a knife-wielding woman they say threatened a pharmacist with a note then stole several hundred dollars’ worth of Oxycodone pills Monday afternoon.

A woman approached the Riverwalk Pharmacy on Martinsville Road in Basking Ridge and asked to speak with the pharmacist shortly after 2:20 p.m., Bernards Township Police said in a release.

When the pharmacist approached, the woman handed her a note threatening her safety and demanding Oxycodone pills, police said.

The woman then wielded a knife and a can of pepper spray as the pharmacist was gathering the pills, authorities said.

She then walked around the counter, grabbed several hundred pills worth about $250 and ran in an unknown direction, police said.

The woman had light skin, weighed about 230 pounds and was wearing black clothing, a black face mask and red shoes during the robbery, police said.

Anyone with information and/or surveillance footage of this incident is asked to contact Detective Michael Yeo at (908) 766-1122.
