On Friday, November 9, 2018, at 10:53 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report a bicyclist was injured as a result of a boobytrap that was erected across the Interstate 205 Multi-Use Path near Southeast Division Street.
Officers and emergency medical personnel arrived and located an injured adult female. Emergency medical responders provided the victim on scene medical treatment. Officers learned the victim was traveling north while riding her bicycle on the Interstate 205 Multi-Use Path when she became entangled and injured by material strung across the path.
As an officer searched the area, he located woven string that spanned the path just south of Southeast Division Street. During the investigation, officers also located three suspects believed to have positioned the woven string across the path. The three suspects were taken into custody without incident.
The suspects have been identified 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 Assault in the Fourth Degree and three counts of Reckless Endangering
