A 21-year-old man has been detained, suspected of being the Escazú motorcycle bandit.
The Judicial Investigating Organization conducted a Friday raid at the man’s home in San Antonio de Escazú to make the arrest.
Agents said there are two cases that are attributed to the man.
The first was Oct. 23 when two women were confronted by a man on a motorcycle in the Santa Teresa section of Escazú. He pulled a gun and they surrendered their belongings.
The second case was last Nov. 28 in San Antonio when another pedestrian was confronted by the motorcycle bandit.
