    An armed robber stole drugs at gunpoint from a store in San Francisco's Richmond District on Monday morning, police said.

    The robbery occurred around 9:50 a.m. in the first block of Point Lobos Avenue, according to police. A Walgreens is located in that block.

    The suspect, described as a man around 20 years old, entered the store, approached a 27-year-old store employee and pulled out a handgun. He then went to the other side of the counter and demanded that the victim hand over medications, police said.
