Portland, OR (STL.News) The Portland Police Bureau is continuing to investigate criminal activity that took place during the demonstrations on February 8, 2020 in about a 2-block area of downtown Portland. Monday, PPB is sharing additional photos of suspects who were involved in those crimes in an effort to identify those suspects.
During this event, metal-tipped umbrellas were used to jab toward people and chase them down the street, and objects (including rocks, concrete, batons, cans, and food) were thrown at community members and police. There were at least two community members who were targeted by individuals with pepper spray. These community members were provided treatment by Portland Fire and Rescue medics assigned to the PPB Rapid Response Team (RRT) and assisted from the scene.
