RIDDLE, Ore. — Three Roseburg men were arrested Friday afternoon for Burglary, Kidnapping and a number of other crimes. 

On Friday, February 16, 2024, around 10:00 a.m., 9-1-1 dispatchers received a report of a disturbance in the 200-block of Maple Street in Riddle. Callers were reporting a physical disturbance where three men were assaulting another. One caller reported that the men were applying zip-ties to the male to restrain him. 

Deputies arrived on scene and were able to determine that 25-year-old Justin Daniel Devlaeminck, 53-year-old Daniel Terrance Devlaeminck, and 26-year-old Austin Lee Lyman broke into a residence in an effort to “evict” the 22-year-old victim. Justin Devlaeminck pointed a firearm at the victim and Daniel Devlaeminck broke a window to the residence. All three suspects entered the home and began to assault the male victim who tried to escape, but was pulled back. At one point, the victim was able to break away and flee outside where the three suspects captured him and continued their assault and eventually used zip ties to restrain him. 

The victim was transported to Mercy Medical Center by ambulance for treatment of his injuries. 

All three suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Douglas County Jail where they were lodged on the following charges: 

Daniel Devlaeminck: Burglary I, Kidnapping I, Assault IV, Criminal Mischief II

Justin Devlaeminck: Burglary I, Kidnapping I, Assault IV, Menacing, Pointing a Firearm at Another

Austin Lyman: Burglary I, Kidnapping I, Assault IV

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Myrtle Creek Police Department, Umpqua Valley Ambulance and Riddle Fire Department.
