Police are looking for a suspect the City of Edina has dubbed the "Buttcrack bandit."

The city says the suspect robbed a CVS Pharmacy at 6905 York Avenue on Thursday around 7 p.m.

A white or hispanic male had jumped the pharmacy counter and forced an employee to open the medication safe, officials say. He stole Oxycodone and hydrocodone – both are narcotics used to treat pain.

The robber is described as being 6 feet tall and weighing 210 pounds. He was wearing a maroon hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants white shoes and gloves.

Authorities say a second suspect waited for him outside in a black sedan.

Officials ask anyone with information to contact Detective Kenna Dick at 952-826-0491.

The city says a similar incident was reported that same night in Richfield.
