Police arrest three men accused of injuring cyclist with booby trap
PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) — Portland police arrested three people suspected of setting a boobytrap on a bicycle path Friday night.
Officers responded to a report of a bicyclist who was injured as a result of the alleged boobytrap near Oregon's I-205.
When officers and medical personnel arrived they treated the injured woman at the scene.
She told officers she was traveling north while riding her bicycle on the path when she became entangled and injured by material that was strung across the path.
An officer searched the area and found woven string that spanned the path just south of Southeast Division Street. During the investigation, officers also located three suspects who they believe placed the string across the path. Officers took the suspects into custody.
Police identified the suspects as 23-year-old Justin J. Jones, 27-year-old Antonio R. Tolman-Duran, and 21-year-old Dakota E. Murphy. Jones, Tolman-Duran and Murphy were lodged at the Multnomah County Jail and have since been released. They were booked on charges of fourth-degree assault and three counts of reckless endangering.
