SIMI VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — Police have arrested two teens in connection with an assault and vandalism at a Ventura County elementary school.

According to police, a Simi Valley Unified School District employee arrived at Santa Susana Elementary School at around 7:30 p.m. Monday to clean classrooms when he found two Hispanic teens vandalizing a room on campus.

“One of the juveniles struck the employee and the suspects fled in the victim’s work vehicle, which was a white Ford van with school district markings,” Sgt. Craig Dungan of the Simi Valley Police Department said.

The van was later found abandoned nearby.

About an hour after the assault, a Simi Valley police officer arrested the two juveniles matching the suspects’ description near a business on Tapo Street.

The teens were booked into juvenile hall for robbery, car jacking, burglary, felony vandalism and participation in a criminal street gang.

One suspect was also being held on additional charges of possession of a dirk or dagger, possession of a weapon on school grounds and possession of marijuana.

The suspects’ identities were not released due to their ages.
