###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###
On Sunday June 14, 2020 there were several demonstrations throughout the city in different parts of town.
A group of several thousand gathered at Jefferson High School in North Portland. The group marched to Alberta Park at about 6:00 p.m. and assembled for several hours. The group concluded the demonstration and dispersed.
At about 7:15 p.m. a group of motorcycle riders shut down Interstate 5 southbound on the upper deck of the Fremont Bridge. The group dispersed on their own after a brief time.
At Southwest 3 Avenue and Southwest Main Street a group of more than a hundred gathered behind the fenced area near the Justice Center. The group threw projectiles over the fence including glass bottles, and climbed on the fence. A person came through the opening of the fence and remained. Officers ordered the person to leave the enclosed area however the orders were not heeded. Officers took that person into custody shortly after 9:00 p.m.
During the above mentioned custody many projectiles were thrown at the officers and person in custody, including an incendiary device, which appeared to be a commercial grade firework. Fortunately no one was injured.
Due to the unsafe criminal activity, a civil disturbance was announced and the event was declared an unlawful assembly. Officers dispersed the group from the area. The crowd did not leave the boundaries of the closure placed into effect and gathered in several different areas of downtown blocking roadways. Officers attempted to disperse the groups and arrests were made. One of these splinter group gatherings was near the area of Southwest 10 Avenue and Taylor Street. More dispersal orders were given and some arrest were made. By 1 a.m., the downtown area was mostly cleared of demonstrators.
Over a dozen arrest 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.
No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event.
PPB Patrol officers also responded to a double stabbing incident while the demonstration downtown was still happening. Please see prior published press release for details.
