Back in July, Jay Hamlin was the victim of a scary assault and robbery while bicycling on the Springwater Corridor in southeast Portland.
Today the Multnomah County District Attorney announced they arrested a suspect in connection with the case and have charged him with felony robbery, assault and theft.
20-year-old Diovionne Green was seen in a video (above) riding Hamlin’s high-end Colnago road bike valued at $10,000. Once that video circulated online and in the local media, someone was able to identify Green. Portland Police Bureau detectives were able to meet with Green yesterday and he subsequently admitted to the crimes and was booked into jail.
According to the DA’s statement (PDF), the bicycle has been returned to Hamlin. Green has been released and the investigation is ongoing.
