Since the events of August 22, 2021 in the Argay Terrace, Parkrose, and Downtown neighborhoods, Portland Police Detectives from multiple units have been working on follow-up investigations, and are now asking for help from the public to move their cases forward.

Today, PPB is releasing photographs of 6 people who committed crimes but have yet to be identified. They're asking the public to leave a tip through the PPB Can You ID Me webpage:">

In addition to the unidentified individuals, detectives have already identified over a half-dozen individuals involved in violent behavior and possible assault crimes and those investigations are ongoing. However, no victims have come forward to report those possible assaults. The detectives are asking for anyone who was a victim of an assault to call the police non-emergency line at (503) 823-3333 and reference case number 21-681328.

There were property crimes committed, including significant damage to at least three vehicles. None of the vehicles' owners has come forward to make a police report. Detectives have reached out to registered owners. If you were a victim of a non-violent crime (such as vandalism), go to to make a report online. Please reference case number 21-681328.

Not having a participating victim significantly limits the charges that can potentially be brought against criminal suspects. Detectives are still pursuing the cases and charges where probable cause exists, but they are asking for victims to come forward.

Additionally, existing evidence suggests there were numerous community members and independent press documenting the incident with still and/or video cameras. Detectives are requesting that those who have those videos provide them complete and unedited so that can help develop a full picture of crimes that took place. Those videos can be provided via e-mail at or anonymously through Crime Stoppers. Investigators do not need links to media sites as these have already been obtained and will be reviewed.

IMPORTANT - For larger files of photos and/or video, please use a Dropbox, Google Drive, or other cloud storage service, create a link, and email the link and any information to .

Again, the Portland Police Bureau is asking for help identifying victims and witnesses in the following manner:

-If you were a victim of a violent crime, please make a police report by calling the police non-emergency line at (503) 823-3333. Please reference case number 21-681328.

-If you were a victim of a non-violent crime (such as vandalism), go to Please reference case number 21-681328.

-If you witnessed a crime or have evidence of a crime, including videos and photos, submit those at Please reference case number 21-681328.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
