CINCINNATI -- A woman police say robbed a CVS Pharmacy in downtown Cincinnati in September is at large, and officers need help to identify her. 

On September 13 around 11 a.m., the suspect entered the store located in the 300 block of E. 7th Street. 

Robin Upchurch of the Cincinnati Police Department said the woman took some merchandise from the store's shelves and hid them in her bag. As she left CVS, the store manager tried to stop her, but she sprayed him with mace and got away. 

Upchurch described the suspect as a black female dressed in a white shirt. Surveillance footage from CVS shows the suspect with short black hair carrying a pink tote bag and wearing sunglasses on her head. 

Anyone with information on the woman is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
