KINGSPORT — Police were investigating a Monday afternoon strong-arm robbery outside a Kingsport pharmacy.

Kingsport Police Department Det. Sgt. Chris Tincher said the incident occurred at approximately 12:20 p.m. at P and S Pharmacy, 613 Watauga St. As a woman exited the store with prescription in hand, a man allegedly grabbed the medication and ran from the scene.

Sgt. Tincher said the woman, 27, was knocked to the ground, incurring scrapes and bruises. Police believe the suspect may have been scouting the area for a victim, as he was allegedly spotted outside the store some 30 minutes before the robbery occurred.
