SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A store worker was severely beaten in a Friday night robbery at a Santa Rosa pharmacy, police said Saturday.

According to the police report, two men entered CVS on Mendocino Avenue shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, jumped over the counter and demanded money and pills.

They then asked an employee to empty the cash registers at the front of the store. Then the thieves ordered her to open a safe at the back of the store, but she couldn’t comply. At that point, according to police, one of the suspects began hitting the woman with his fists so hard that she subsequently required emergency medical attention.

After officers arrived, the woman was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
