Summerville police are investigating after a knife-toting man robbed a CVS pharmacy early Tuesday.

According to Summerville Police Captain Jon Rogers, the robbery happened at the pharmacy at 301 North Main Street around 12:30 a.m.  Rogers said the suspect, a white male, made off with Oxycontin after threatening a pharmacist with a kitchen knife.

No one was injured.
