MIAMI – Miami police have arrested a 25-year-old man in connection with a June 7 armed robbery of an international student.

Devin Lewis was arrested Thursday on charges of attempted murder and armed robbery with a firearm.

Hammar was shot twice during the incident and was treated at an area hospital. 

Police said Hammar was shown six photos in a lineup earlier in the day and was able to identify Lewis as one of his attackers.
