Three Petaluma men were arrested this morning on suspicion of vandalizing an elementary school after police allegedly saw one of them crash through a skylight, police said.

The suspects, Sean Norquist-Pocekay, 22, Jacob Robinson, 18, and Francis Filice, 22, all of Petaluma, were discovered at about 4 a.m. at Grant Elementary School, 200 Grant St., police said.

Officers responding to a possible vandalism in progress allegedly heard the suspects breaking items on the roof of the school, police said.

As the officers approached the school, Filice fell about 15 feet through a six-by-six-foot skylight and landed on the ground in the center quad area, police said.

He suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Norquist-Pocekay and Robinson were removed from the roof and taken into custody, police said.

They were booked in county jail, and bail was set at $5,000.
