FAIRFIELD — A custodian was robbed at gunpoint late Wednesday as 41 iPads were stolen from Sem Yeto Continuation School, marking the third time this school year that devices were pilfered from the campus.
The prior two incidents were classified as burglaries, but Fairfield police are now looking for two men responsible for Wednesday night’s incident, where the school employee was restrained with duct tape.
The incident took place around 10 p.m. when a 50-year-old male custodian was walking from one building to another. He was approached by two men, one of whom carried a handgun. The custodian was told at gunpoint to lay on the ground and threats on his life were made while inquiring about the iPads, according to police reports.
