BROCKTON -
Police are investigating an attempted robbery at the CVS pharmacy on Centre Street after a masked man allegedly jumped behind the pharmacy counter early Saturday morning, police said.
Officers responded to the CVS at 355 Centre St. at 5:33 a.m. Saturday after receiving a 911 call that a man was threatening to rob the pharmacy at gunpoint.
At least six police cruisers responded to the scene.
A pharmacist told officers that a man wearing a gray stocking cap jumped over the counter and began walking towards pharmacy staff, police said.
The pharmacist began throwing things at the suspect to keep him away and then the suspect jumped back over the counter and ran out of the store, police said.
Other store employees and a driver for Yellow Cab also chased the suspect out of the store, police said.
Nothing was taken from the store and no weapon was shown, police said.
Officers searched the area but did not find anyone matching the suspect's description, police said.
