Jonathan Duhamel Robbery Case solved?

2010 WSOP* Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel is a good friend of RakeTheRake, and he’s even downed a few drinks with the RakeTheRake girls. So when we heard about the horrific robbery and beating that Duhamel endured, RakeTheRake was shocked and concerned for him.

About a week ago, two men broke into the Canadian’s suburban Montreal home in the morning, and started attacking him. Eventually, they tied Duhamel up and kept hitting him until he told them where the valuables were. With this knowledge in hand, the robbers stole Duhamel’s 2010 Main Event gold bracelet, a Rolex Submariner watch that came from PokerStars, and some money.

Fortunately, it didn’t take the police long to apprehend some suspects, and they have four people in custody. While details on the case are still being sorted out, 26-year-old André Robert Perron was the first person arrested after he was reportedly wearing the Rolex Submariner watch with Duhamel’s engraved name.

Shortly after Perron was brought in by police, Bianca Rojas-Latraverse, John Lemay and Stephan Clark were also arrested. According to Duhamel’s agent, he dated Rojas-Latraverse for a short time, but he doesn’t know any of the other three people connected with this case. At this point, she and the three men are just suspects, so we’ll have to see how this case pans out.

But whatever happens, we’re glad that Jonathan Duhamel avoided any really serious injuries from the attack and robbery. Furthermore, we hope that he’s able to get his stolen gold bracelet back because it’s very important to him. The 24-year-old was quoted as saying, “I won’t hide the fact that these two items have a much larger value for me than their commercial value, and I really hope we will be able to retrieve them in a near future.”

Since winning the 2010 Main Event along with $8,944,310, Duhamel has become one of the most recognizable poker pros in the world. He also won a 2011 EPT Deauville High Roller title ($272,209), finished 4th in the NBC Heads-Up Championship ($125,000), and cashed in lots of other poker tournaments.
