FAIRFIELD, CA - Two suspects broke into a Fairfield school Wednesday night, tied up the custodian and stole school iPads at gunpoint.
The 50-year-old man was walking outside from one building of Sem Yeto Continuation School to another around 9:52 p.m. when he was approached by two men. Fairfield police said the suspects, one with a handgun, forced the man to lie on the ground and threatened to kill him if he did not cooperate.
The suspects demanded to know where the school kept its iPads. After the custodian gave them the location, the suspects duct taped the man's hands and then taped him to a desk. The suspects then went to where the iPads were stored, stole about 40 iPads and then ran away from the school.
Police said the custodian was able to free hands and called police. When officers arrives on scene, the custodian was still partially taped to the desk.
The custodian was not injured in the robbery.
The suspects were described as:
Suspect 1 was described as a black man in his 20s, 5'9" to 6" tall, with a medium build; he was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black leather jacket, dark jeans, black/white shoes and shoes.
Suspect 2 was described as a black man in his 20s, 5'5" to 5'7" tall, with a medium build; he was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans with a white design on the back pockets, white gloves and white/black shoes.
Police said this is the third time the school's iPads were stolen; the other two incidents happened in September and October 2012.
