Employees of the Corelife Eatery said a man standing only about five-feet to five-feet, two-inches tall entered the store at 9:56 p.m., about 45 minutes after closing time, sporting a white mask with red lips and defined chin.  The suspect displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money.

The man was said to weigh only about 100 pounds.  He was wearing blue jeans, a grey hooded sweatshirt, white sneakers and the mask appeared to have an open mouth with teeth.

The suspect fled the restaurant in an unknown direction.

There were no injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call Vestal Police at (607) 754-2477.
