Driver reportedly stops for phone call, robbed in Petaluma

After stopping his car in east Petaluma late Monday afternoon to make a phone call, a Petaluma driver told police two men robbed him of his wallet and threatened him with assault, police said Tuesday.

The victim called officers Monday at about 4:40 p.m., reporting the robbery on Banff Way near Bond Park, said Petaluma Sgt. Marty Frye.

Officers searched the area but didn't find anyone matching the given descriptions.

The 40-year-old victim told officers his driver's side window was down when he stopped to make a call. Two men approached the car and demanded he give up his wallet or be assaulted, Frye said.
