PORTLAND, Ore. — At least 14 people were arrested on a variety of charges during Inauguration Day demonstrations in Portland.

A crowd left Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland and marched to the Democratic Party of Oregon where they smashed windows and vandalized the building before moving towards Buckman Park.  Officers identified several suspects responsible for damage and criminal activity.  Several arrests were made near the park and during traffic stops.  Police say the crowd dispersed on its own without any further use of force.

The following people were arrested:

22-year-old Kyle Romstad of Portland for Criminal Mischief II
22-year-old Kaiave Douvia of Portland for Criminal Mischief I
18-year-old Jean Paris of Albany for Interfering with a Peace Officer, Criminal Mischief III, Resist Arrest
18-year-old Alyssa Davis of Albany for Interfering with a Peace Officer, Disorderly Conduct II
25-year-old Austin Nuchraska of McMinnville for Possession of a Destructive Device, Criminal Mischief I
25-year-old Nicole Rose of Portland for Criminal Mischief I
31-year-old Darnell Kimberlin of Portland for Reckless Burning, Criminal Mischief II
38-year-old Davis Beeman of Vancouver, WA for Riot, Disorderly Conduct II

Police responded to a roll-over crash near Northeast 6th and Fremont.  A planned event was underway at nearby Irving Park.  People from the gathering descended on the crash, climbed on the vehicle, and appeared to begin trying to get people out.  As officers arrived, the crowd shouted at them.  Back-up was called to clear out the crowd and allow police to reach the victims.  There did not appear to be any injuries.

A group marched from Irving Park and blocked streets as they marched through inner Northeast Portland.

Later, people began gathering at Elizabeth Caruthers Park in South Portland and a crowd walked to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices where graffiti was sprayed on the building.  Federal officers moved in to push the crowd away.  Portland Police circulated the neighborhood and made several probable cause arrests before the crowd dissipated.
