MIAMI (WSVN) - A man has been arrested after being accused of attacking a woman as she exercised in her Downtown Miami neighborhood.
“For sure this is the guy,” said the victim, Giselle Lora.
Only a day after a 7News exclusive on the Port Boulevard crime against Giselle Lora, Miami Police confirmed they have made an arrest.
“The various things she did led us to where he was today. We arrested him, and we charged him accordingly,” said Miami Police officer Kenia Fallat.
Much to the obvious delight of the victim…
“Relieved. I am really relieved and thankful,” said Lora.
“The right thing to do is scream, kick,” said Fallat. “You did a very astute thing. She took a photo, and that is what led us to catch him, not even 24 hours later, 12 hours later.”
Twenty-six-year-old Jonathon Brown remains locked up and was taken to TGK earlier Wednesday afternoon.
Brown is being charged for battery and police said he had a warrant in Tallahassee for false imprisonment and other charges, including battery and kidnapping.
“Thankful to the City of Miami, thank you Channel 7, of course,” said Lora. “Thanks to everybody working together, this was done so quickly.”
Brown appeared in court on Thursday morning and was ordered to be held on $5,000 bond. He also received a stay away order from the victim and Bayside.
