A pushy robber made off with a fistful of pills after knocking down a pedestrian on Market Street Saturday, police said.

The suspect pushed the victim to the ground in the process, saying nothing before fleeing on foot. The victim reported the crime to Tenderloin Station police officers Sunday afternoon.

The suspect remains at large, Shyy said.
