10 rioters were arrested during Portland violent protests
The riots in downtown Portland on July 3rd forced the local police to use tear gas to disperse the crowd. Also, 10 people were arrested for damage to public property.
According to police reports, aggressive protesters threw stones and bottles. They used improvised explosives and fireworks to inflict significant damage to law enforcement.
One of 10 arrested faces federal charges.
“The lawless and violent acts of extremists across the political spectrum cannot continue,” said US Attorney for Oregon Billy Williams. “Violence directed at federal, state, and local law enforcement and property destruction is inconsistent with the aims of social justice.”
To date, the rest of the bashing participants have been charged with assaulting officers, interfering with a police officer, resistance to arrest and disorderly conduct.
Currently, Isaiah Emanuel Jackson, 35; Laurielle Yvette Aviles, 28; Kristina Lynn Naranjorivera, 34; Sage Patterson, 20; Dane A Zielinski, 26; Gabriel Phillipa Sprague, 30; Patrick Mellon, 37; and Alexander Michael Sundine, 26 are in custody in the Multnomah County Jail. The preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 6th.
