Police investigating downtown Petaluma assault as possible hate crime

PETALUMA (KRON) -- Petaluma Police are investigating a vicious assault in the downtown area as a possible hate crime.

Police say two Saturdays ago a white couple exited this restaurant about 9 p.m., and as they walked to their car a block away, the man was attacked by 4-5 African American men.

“He received injuries from one suspect and a second then came up and kicked him in the face and they believe it was racially motivated,” said Petaluma Police Lt. Tim Lyons.

The 60-year-old victim, who suffered broken bones to the face and was hospitalized for two days, maintains the assault near the intersection of Petaluma Boulevard North and Mary Street was unprovoked and racially motivated.

“He said there was a derogatory term made to him before the assault,” Lyons said.

Petaluma police says there are some inconsistencies between the victim's statement and his companions, which they are trying to clear up.

“We have checked with some restaurants and bars checking for some surveillance video, we haven't been able to independently confirm that it did occur, but the victim did receive injuries,” the lieutenant said.

The search for the suspects is ongoing.

Neither the victim or his companion could provide a good description of the suspects other than they were driving an emerald green Honda Civic.
