According to the Journal de Montreal and the Globe and Mail, four suspects including an ex-girlfriend have now been arrested in the Jonathan Duhamel home invasion case.

Police told the Journal the investigation "is progressing very quickly" based on tips from the public and that one suspect, André Robert Perron, 26, was seen wearing the black Rolex watch stolen from Duhamel before his arrest.

Perron appeared at the Longueuil courthouse yesterday afternoon along with his suspected accomplices, 20-year-old Bianca Rojas-Latraverse and 22-year-old John Lemay.

According to the Globe and Mail, police say a fourth man was arrested this morning and is currently being questioned.

Shortly after the names were released, rumors began circulating on the 2+2 forums that Duhamel knew the attackers personally and that Rojas-Latraverse was his ex-girlfriend.

Duhamel's agent has now confirmed the woman was someone Duhamel dated briefly and is the only person among the accused that Duhamel actually knew.

According to a police spokesperson, Rojas is accused of conspiracy and the other two are accused of robbery, breaking and entering, unlawful confinement and assault.

Police have confirmed the watch has been recovered but not Duhamel's 2010 WSOP championship bracelet.

Should they fail to find Duhamel's bracelet, however, World Series of Poker media relations director Seth Palansky confirmed the WSOP will offer him a new one.

"The tournament director, Mitch Garber, contacted Jonathan after the incident and informed him that the bracelet can be replaced as needed," Palansky told the Journal.
