A major break in a months’ long investigation in Atlanta.

Police say they've arrested a biker who ripped a diamond ring off an older woman's hand in Buckhead.

Investigators say 35-year-old Jermaine Hewitt was on a motorcycle when he followed the woman to a salon on Piedmont Road back in October.

Once she parked, police say Hewitt forcefully yanked the 5-carat diamond ring off her finger.

Last week, members of the Atlanta Fugitive Unit arrested Hewitt in Lithonia.

Police are also investigating a similar case from last February when a motorcyclist snatched a Rolex off a woman's wrist in Buckhead.
