     No one was injured during what is being called a strong-arm robbery, but the suspect is still on the loose.

He said earlier, "We're Looking for a white male, olive complexion..got a black skull cap, green coat with a tan collar. Obviously we're working with the state police, Horseheads police, Elmira Police Department. No vehicle description at this point."
       The man is said to be around 40-years-old. There's no word on how much, if any, the suspect got away with and police say no weapon was used.
