Cambridge Police arrest a female who reportedly robbed the CVS Pharmacy at gunpoint.
Officers report that at 9:53 p.m. Tuesday night, just before store closing, a female wearing a black coat, a surgical mask and armed with a handgun, entered the store and pushed a handgun against an employees side and demanded money from the safe.
She fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Patrolman Gebhart located the suspect two blocks from the store and attempted to take her into custody. A citizen driving by assisted the officer as the woman tried to get away.
She was taken into custody as other officers arrived.
They were able to recover the stolen cash, which she was carrying in a plastic bag, a large knife and a gun found in her coat. Her get-a-way vehicle found in a nearby parking lot was impounded.
She’s being held in the County Jail while detectives pursue robbery charges against her.
