PETALUMA (BCN) - Petaluma police arrested a Santa Rosa man Tuesday on suspicion of attacking a bartender who refused to sell him a drink.

Robledo punched the bartender in the face and head and kicked her in the face when she fell on the ground, police said. Several bar patrons were holding Robledo down when police responded to the assault.

Police arrested Robledo on suspicion of felony battery and public intoxication. He was booked into Sonoma County Jail.
