Another day, another bomb threat facing Davis schools: “We also placed bombs in fairfield Da vinci, Davis senior, King high schools and yolo county library (sic).”
The email once again was loaded with obscenities and threats.
This is at least the sixth known bomb threat, and third since last Wednesday.
On Monday, Chief Darren Pytel issued a pointed statement where he alluded to potential for criminal charges.
Pytel wrote that “criminal cases have been forwarded to the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office to review for criminal charging regarding some of the local social media postings affecting the community that may constitute criminal doxing (threats or harassing communication via communications including social media).”
The Davis Vanguard was bcc’d on another bomb threat this morning, Monday, September 25, 2023. We immediately contacted 911 and forwarded the email to the police department.
The subject line of the email read, “Subject: We placed bombs all over Davis”
The body of the email, read:
“You are groomers, child abusers, child predators and pedophiles. You will die. We placed a bomb at DJUSD offices at 526 B St, Davis, CA 95616, Martin Luther King High School, North Davis Elementary School, Birch Lane Elementary School and Mary L. Stephens Davis Library. Fuck you faggots we’ll see you in hell.”
Monday Update from DJUSD: “We have received bomb threats sent via email threatening Birch Lane, North Davis, King, DSIS, the District Office and the Yolo County Library Davis Branch. The Davis Police Department is coordinating with District staff to search all of these sites and have already cleared DSIS, King and the District Office. Students and staff should not report to North Davis and Birch Lane until they have been cleared. School will start one hour after the site is cleared.”
