Officers arrested a man who allegedly attempted to rob a convenience store clerk in Petaluma on Tuesday morning, according to police. A clerk from a Quik Stop convenience store at 1510 E. Washington St. called Petaluma police to report an attempted robbery at 12:38 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
The suspect, Steven Davidor, had been previously spotted outside of the store looking through the windows, according to police.
Once the clerk was alone, Davidor entered the store and approached him, demanding the keys to his car while holding what appeared to be a knife, police said. The clerk refused Davidor’s demands and walked behind the counter to call police, prompting Davidor to run into a storage room and lock the door behind him.
Officers arrived within one minute of the clerk’s call and breeched the locked storage room door to find Davidor hiding while wearing a sweatshirt that the clerk left inside the room, police said. Police took Davidor into custody and found a folding knife in his possession. Davidor was booked into Sonoma County Jail with bail set at $30,000.
