Cops: Pills swiped during holdup
* Market Street near 56th, West
Cops are looking for a man who they say robbed a pharmacy at gunpoint Monday and got away with several bottles of prescription painkillers.
Three employees were working at Sunray Drugs when the gunman went inside the store at 10:50 a.m., police said. Surveillance video shows the man, who cops say brandished a small black handgun, approaching the counter.
After an employee who saw the gun opened the door to the back room, police said, the robber ordered the three employees to the floor and loaded several bottles of oxycodone and Percocet into a bag. He then fled north on 56th Street.
The robber is described as a 160-pound black man who is age 30 to 35 and between 5 feet 9 and 6 feet tall with a light complexion, curly hair, a beard and a mustache. He wore a black shirt and blue jeans and carried a black semiautomatic handgun.

H.S. trainer eyed in teen assault
* Cheltenham High School
An athletic trainer at Cheltenham High School was arrested and charged with sexual assault Tuesday after allegedly making "unwelcome sexual contact" with a 14-year-old student, authorities said.
Ramon Cintron allegedly assaulted the girl in his high-school office on Thursday, said Risa Vetri Ferman, Montgomery County district attorney.
Ferman said Cintron sent the girl several text messages apologizing for his behavior and begged the girl not to tell anyone because he "could get locked up" if anyone found out.
Cintron is not an employee of the school district, said Superintendent Darlene G. Davis, but works for Moss Rehabilitation Center, which contracts with the township.
Cintron, who was being held on $100,000 cash bail, is also charged with indecent assault, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful contact with a minor.
