Two Men Duct-Taped a Local School Janitor to a Desk & Stole 40 iPads

The armed men ordered the janitor to lie on the ground -- threatening to kill him if he did not cooperate.


40 iPads were stolen from a school in Fairfield after two men duct-taped a 50-year-old janitor to a desk Wednesday night. 

The janitor was walking between buildings at Sem Yeto Continuation High School when two armed men approached him and ordered him to lie on the ground -- threatening to kill him if he did not cooperate, according to Fairfield Police Lt. Randall Boggs. 

Sem Yeto is just a few blocks north of Suisun City. 

Bay City News reported the following details on Thursday:   

The suspects told the custodian to take them where the school's iPads were stored, Boggs said.

They bound his hands with duct tape, bound the janitor to a desk and stole the iPads, valued at $350 each, Boggs said.  

The uninjured custodian partially freed his hands and called police, and he was still partially taped to a desk when officers arrived, Boggs said.

Police were unable to locate the robbers.

The robbery was the third in four months in which thieves targeted the school's iPads, Boggs said.

The school was burglarized in September and October, but this is the first time the armed robbers accosted school staff, Boggs said.  

The black male suspects are in their 20s with a medium build, police said.

One man is 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans with a white design on the back pockets, white gloves and white and black shoes.

The other suspect is 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black leather jacket, dark jeans, gloves and black and white shoes.
