ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Police said they are still searching for a suspect who held up a nurse at St. Anthony’s Hospice House August 9.

Police said a man wearing a mask, gloves, and claiming he had a handgun tried to force a nurse inside the hospice house so he could take narcotics. The nurse turned and ran. The center was placed on lockdown while police searched the campus.

“We had police on the scene within about two minutes, there was a great chance that he was already gone out of a window or back door to a heavily wooded area behind it before we arrived on scene,” said Brian Schellman with St. Louis County Police.

The hospital does have training in place for intruder scenarios. St. Anthony’s said it is also looking at other measures.
