Rioters Try to Break Down Door of Portland Police Association

Demonstrators in Portland, Oregon have reportedly tried to break down the door of the Portland Police Association.

Rioters attempted to break down the door of the Portland Police Association, authorities tweeted Wednesday evening.

“A protest has developed near North Lombard Street and North Campbell Avenue, where participants have tried to break down the door the Portland Police Association,” the Portland police tweeted. “We are monitoring the situation.”

 

Police asked protesters to remain on the sidewalk and warned those trying to break in were subject to arrest.

“To those participating in the protest, this direction is being given over loudspeaker: stay on the sidewalk, do not try to break into the building or violate any other laws. If you do you’re subject to arrest and/or use of force including less lethal weapons.”

 

At about 7:20 p.m., the demonstrators dispersed. While some vandalism occurred, no arrests were made and no force was used.

Journalist Andy Ngo posted footage of the most recent Portland demonstration online.

 

The repair bill for federal buildings in Portland damaged during left-wing protests in the city last summer exceeded $2 million, according to local media.
