A man wearing dark-colored makeup on his face robbed a Petaluma cellphone store while armed Friday evening, Petaluma police said. Officers responded to the Real PCS cellphone store at 2620 Lakeville Highway shortly after the incident was reported at 7:02 p.m., police said. The suspect entered the store and pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the sales clerk and demanded money, police said.
