National News

Three men are in custody after a woman cyclist was hurt by a booby trap on a multi-use path across I-205 near Southeast Division late Friday night.

The cyclist was hurt shortly before 11 p.m., Portland police said in a news release. She was headed north on the I-205 multi-use path when she ran into material that was strung across it.

The woman became entangled and was injured.

A responding officer spotted woven string spanning the path just south of Southeast Division. Other officers also found three men who they believe wove the string across the path and arrested them without incident.

Justin J. Jones, 27, Antonio R. Tolman-Duran, 27 and 21-year-old Dakota E. Murphy were taken to jail and booked on assault and reckless endangering. They were later released, officials said.

Anyone using the I-205 multi-use path who spots hazardous conditions should call the Portland Park Rangers at 503.823.1637 or PPB at 503.823.333.
