On Friday, September 18, 2020 at about 8:45p.m., a march began from Elizabeth Caruthers Park at 3508 South Moody Avenue. It proceeded to the federal facility at 4310 South Macadam Ave where a demonstration was held. The crowd and federal law enforcement engaged with one another and the crowd was dispersed into the South Portland neighborhood.

With the assembly in the neighborhood, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers responded and encouraged the crowd to continue dispersing. PPB gave direction to the crowd via loudspeaker and social media that it was an unlawful assembly. All persons were told to immediately disperse to the north. Failure to adhere to this order may subject them to arrest, citation, or the use of crowd control agents, including, but not limited to impact munitions.

PPB learned that individuals in the crowd were engaged in criminal activity, including throwing items at officers. PPB officers made 11 arrests. The following were booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on the listed charges:
