Crime Stoppers for the Week of April 21, 2003

April 22, 2003 00:00


Portland Police are releasing photos and asking for your help in identifying the individuals pictured.

On Thursday, March 20, 2003, at approximately 6:00 in the evening, a splinter group of protestors, marching behind two large signs that read "All BETS ARE OFF " and "SHUT IT DOWN," went up a west ramp of the Steel Bridge and confronted police who were on the bridge.

In the group of protestors was an individual carrying a cardboard sign that read "CAPITALISM KILLS." Inside the cardboard sign, as it was later learned, was a bat that was used to strike an officer in the head. The officer required ten stitches to close the wound.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case and/or the identities of individuals in the photos. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP, or e-mail information. Callers and/or e-mailers can remain anonymous.
