The Petaluma Police Department is seeking a 25-year-old Petaluma man suspected in an alleged battery and attempted robbery incident on Wednesday at Motel 6.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for facial injuries and a broken arm, police said.

Officers were unable to locate Silva, and have released is photo and are asking the public for help.
