A trip to the drug store turned violent for a man on the west side July 8.

Around midnight, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was called to the CVS Pharmacy at Roosevelt Boulevard and San Juan Avenue.

An unidentified man reported being attacked and robbed by two men while in the parking lot.

Sgt. C.G. Nieto briefed reporters at JSO headquarters following the incident.

"They (the suspects) pretended to ask the victim for directions to a street. They preceeded to beat him down to the ground. They went into his pockets and took his wallet and fled on foot," Nieto detailed.

Surveillance video from the pharmacy helped police identify the suspects, according to Nieto. Both of the suspects were later spotted by police in the area of Lake Shore Boulevard.

The same CVS location made headlines in July when Herman Pickens allegedly shot an employee during an armed robbery. It was the same night a man was shot and killed cleaning restaurant equipment at Mojo No. 4 BBQ in Avondale.
