She quickly read the note, grabbed a 500-count bottle of Norco from her prescription drug supply, and handed it to the man, who she said appeared to be nervous. He never exchanged words with the women during the incident.

After grabbing the bottle, the man walked out of the pharmacy.

The man — described as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 190 pounds and in his 30s — was last seen entering a dark sedan, said Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.

Forensic investigators and detectives are investigating the robbery, he added.

"It was really surprising because we are in a really nice area," Sefyan said. "It's odd."
