RIPON (CBS13) — Ripon police are investigating another coffee shop crime, following several others in Davis and Roseville.

In each case, thieves target seated customers, grabbing their laptops, then running for the door. On Monday, Ripon police say three teenage suspects carried out the heist at a Starbucks on West Colony Road.

Only this time a victim and a Good Samaritan teamed up to take down one of the suspects.

“There was a lot of yelling,” witness Mark Sleming said. “There was probably three or four holding him down, and a bunch of people around him, four or five at least, maybe more.”

Cops were able to take the 16-year-old suspect into custody. Two other suspects were able to get away.

In September, surveillance cameras captured a similar scene in a Davis coffee shop, showing suspects milling around before grabbing customer’s laptops and making their escape through the front doors.

“That they would be brazen enough to come in and steal somebody’s computer, I mean, the whole thing just surprises me,” Cheryl Bolton said.

In Ripon, a repeat of what’s becoming a more common crime. At a spot where you might order a bold coffee, some customers are becoming victims, of this bold crime.

Ripon police are asking for the public’s help with any information related to any of the thefts. The two suspects that got away, and their getaway driver were last seen in a green Lexus GS300.

    Blacks acting black. What do you expect.

    1. I knew the demographic before I even watched the video. It’s no wonder they are shunned like the plague.
      Watch your back when around a black.

    You have to wonder what these teenage thieves look like. LOL No you don’t, do you?

  3. Sonny Crockett says:

    Blacks. Figures. And the wimp leftist coffee sippers with still make excuses for America’s favorite victimized minority. Oh wait. Or are the illegals or trans freaks more coveted now?

    The “guess the race game” is not a challenge anymore.

    These criminals should be shot. Criminals must be made to fear those that they wish to victimize.

  8. Jerry Miller says:

    Dindus duing!

  9. Dave Hardesty says:

    If you could e a CWP in CA and Starbucks didn’t ban weapons in their stores things like this would not happen. It’s really a CA mental problem.

      As ghetto dwellers move into suburbia (Section 8 increases $2,300 1-bedroom $2,800 2-bedroom), we can expect more such crime. Substantive that the perp was 16 years old, just as proposals mount to eliminate juvenile halls. They have no need to fear much, even if they are caught; we need to change that. Reinstate fear of injury, maiming, shame – it’s all some people understand.
