Police are investigating a strong-arm robbery that occurred earlier this month in front of a Petaluma bank.
The victim was sitting in his truck outside the West America Bank at 2013 South McDowell Blvd. on Nov. 18 at 4:24 a.m. when two men approached and told him they wanted his truck, according to police.
The victim refused, and the men pulled him out of the truck.
Police said the man struggled free and started running away, but the men tackled him and started beating him.
The suspects took more than $400 in cash, the man’s ID and a bankcard, police said.
The victim suffered a contusion to his right eye and abrasions to his left arm in the robbery. The suspects did not use a weapon, according to police.
Police said the suspects were both described as being about 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall with thin builds. They were wearing hooded sweatshirts pulled tight over their faces to conceal their identities.
