Man robs Petaluma gas station

Hiding his face with a hood, a man acting like he had a gun in his pocket robbed a Petaluma gas station late Sunday night, reported Petaluma police Monday.

The man in a black hooded winter jacket walked into the Shell gas station on Washington Street just before 10:40 p.m.

He told a clerk to give him money from the register and acted like he had a gun in his pocket, although no weapon was seen, said Sgt. Ed Crosby.

When the clerk opened the register drawer, the robber reached over and pulled out the cash, then left the station.

He was last seen walking from the Washington and Howard Street intersection toward downtown, said Crosby.
