A Euclid drug store was robbed on Tuesday by a man wielding pepper spray and pliers, according to a police report.

The robbery happened at Walgreens, 22401 Lakeshore Blvd., around 4:30 a.m. on July 17.

A man wearing gloves and a mask walked into the store and demanded money from the clerk, the report said. The clerk gave the man money from the registers and the robber fled from the store.

The clerk later told police the man was armed with what appeared to be a can of pepper spray in his left hand and some sort of tool in his right hand. Security footage of the incident later showed the man had a pair of pliers.

No arrests have been made.
