KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police say a man who took money from a Tennessee pharmacy allowed customers to step in front of him at the cash register during the robbery.

The suspect entered a Walgreens late Sunday night in North Knoxville and demanded money. Knoxville police Sgt. Jason Keck says the man kept a hand in his jacket pocket and indicated he had a gun.

Keck says when unaware customers approached the register, the man calmly stepped back and let them step in front of him.

Keck says when the customers left, the suspect stepped closer to the register and again demanded money.

The employee put cash on the counter, the man grabbed it and left.

Police officers searched the area but were unable to find him.
