Boston police are seeking help identifying a man who was dressed as a medical professional when he robbed a Beacon Hill pharmacy of drugs.

The man walked into the Rite Aid at 100 Cambridge St. on Monday and handed the pharmacy attendant a note that demanded Oxycontin. Police said the man held his hand under his shirt, indicating he possibly had a weapon, but witnesses did not see one.

On his way to the pharmacy counter the man grabbed a hat and wore it during the robbery.

Surveillance images captured the man dressed in green scrubs walking through the store.

Anyone with information can call police at 617-343-4248.
