The Portland Police Bureau is asking for the public’s help in identifying the individual who assaulted an officer during a protest on the Portland State University campus.

On Thursday, May 2, 2024, a North Precinct officer assigned to Mobile Field Force was assaulted near the intersection of Southwest Broadway and Southwest Harrison Street. The officer was addressing a confrontational protester when a second protester stepped forward, reached under the officer’s face shield, and sprayed her with pepper spray. The suspect then retreated and ran away.

The suspect is described as a white male, with curly hair, likely in his 20’s, and wearing a blue hoodie sweatshirt at the time of the assault. PPB is releasing a photo of the suspect in hopes that somebody recognizes him.

Anyone with information is urged to contact crimetips@police.portlandoregon.gov and reference case number 24-114343.
