Inside the store, one of the males proceeded behind the counter area and removed a quantity of medication from a safe.

Both males then fled the area on foot.

The first suspect, who brandished the knife, appears to be a taller, heavy set male wearing a black winter coat, jeans, balaclava and gloves.

The second suspect also appears tall, but not as big as the first suspect.

This male wore a dark hoodie with a distinctive white faced Halloween pumpkin design on the front of the sweater and dark wind pants with a white designed stripe along the leg.

The lone male employee in the store at the time of the incident was not injured.

Members of the Sarnia Police patrol branch and detectives from the Criminal Investigations Branch responded to investigate.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Criminal Investigations Branch, 519-344-8861 ext. 5300 or Crime Stoppers.
