A man tried to rob a Huntington pharmacy using a box cutter.

Officials say a man stole a box cutter from CVS pharmacy on Washington avenue around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

He took the knife to the pharmacy department making threats and demanding prescription pills.

Clerks called 911 and Huntington police arrested the man inside the store.

The sign outside the store says it is closed, but will reopen Wednesday at 9 a.m.

No one was injured.
