On June 13, 2020, at approximately 6:00 p.m., demonstrators gathered at two locations within the City of Portland. A group gathered at Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland and a second gathered outside the Justice Center in Downtown Portland.
Several thousands of demonstrators marched from Revolution Hall to Cleveland High School in Southeast Portland. During the march, demonstrators were in the area of Southeast 31st Avenue and Southeast Powell Boulevard. A motorist became entangled in the march and some individuals associated to the demonstration broke multiple car windows, stabbed the tires and chased the vehicle as it attempted to leave the location. If anyone has any information on this incident please call the police. The case number is 20-191491. This incident can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/yj9DGPqOWyg
Once the demonstrators reached Cleveland High School, they assembled and spoke for several hours. After the demonstration, the group dispersed.
The second group of demonstrators began congregating at the Justice Center around 10:00 p.m. Demonstrators gathered at the fence line at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street. Officers observed some demonstrators shake and climb the fence, and throw many projectiles over the fence. Complete panels of fencing had been cut out and several people came through the holes created by demonstrators. Some demonstrators continued throwing projectiles including glass bottles, full beverage containers, rocks, and other projectiles over the fence.
A civil disturbance was declared. The crowd was given the opportunity to disperse and were warned if they did not do so, they were subject to arrest or force. The crowd did not disperse. Officers began dispersing the crowd just after 10:50 p.m. During the dispersal demonstrators were throwing projectiles at officers and lasers were being directed at officers. Also during the dispersal a trash bin was set on fire at Southwest 5th Avenue and Southwest Salmon Street.
At about 12:30 a.m. a group over a hundred demonstrators gathered back up and marched up Vista Avenue towards Jackson Street. Officers responded to the area, which is a residential neighborhood. Some members of the group threw mortars and fireworks at the officers. There was a high level of concern about the risk of fire to occupied residences posed by commercial grade fireworks being detonated. Officers dispersed the group back towards downtown Portland. Several arrests were made over the course of the evening. Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available. The remaining group dispersed at about 2:00 a.m.
No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event.
