Three men are being linked to the robbery and assault of a man at his Petaluma hotel room. The victim told authorities the men forced their way into his room at the Best Western Petaluma Inn two weeks ago and then pistol-whipped him and stole clothing. They’re also accused of assaulting the man the next day and making off with $8,000. The three suspects were cuffed yesterday morning. A motive wasn’t immediately known, although the victim and the three suspects are acquaintances.
