The owner posted the Italian-made Aprilia RSV, which can go nearly 170 mph, the station reported. Two men answered.
“As one guy pulled out a helmet, the other guy pulled out a gun,” Rainwater said. “Now this has become an armed robbery.”
One of the men jumped on the bike and sped off. The other drove off in a car, with the victim firing at him.
Deputies decided not to pursue, due to the speed potential of the motorcycle, Channel 2 reported.
Eventually, DNA evidence led investigators to Akintunde Abayomi, who was charged with armed robbery.
“Because of the DNA,” Rainwater said, “we were able to put one of these two in jail for this crime.”
