The two men arrested this morning have been identified as 20-year-old Angel Tomas Lopez and 38-year-old David Robert Bentley. Both were booked into the Multnomah County Jail.

Lopez was charged with Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, Harassment, Interfering with a Peace Officer (two counts), and Resist Arrest.

Bentley was charged with Assault in the Fourth Degree and Harassment.



This morning, Tuesday October 1, 2013, at approximately 8:00 a m., Central Precinct officers contacted several people sleeping on the sidewalk along Southwest Naito Parkway under the Morrison Bridge.

Officers were conducting routine "wake-up" calls and asking folks to pick up their property.

A dog running loose attacked and bit an officer causing a minor injury. Several people became combative with officers, who deployed pepper spray in the course of making two arrests.

The dog has been taken by Multnomah County Animal Control.

The names and charges of those arrested will be released at a later time.
