UPDATE: Friday Night Protests, Police Say Fireworks, Concrete, Rocks And Eggs Were launched At Officers

Friday evening, police say there were two protesting events in Portland.

One that took place on Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street which police say was peaceful.

Another that gathered at Laurelhurst Park then marched to the Penumbra Kelly Building.

Police say the group marched as support vehicles escorted them, helping block all other vehicular traffic.

According to Portland Police “By 9:45 p.m., the large group reached the Kelly Building. As the group approached the Kelly Building, Portland Police began making public address announcements informing the crowd they were to remain off the Kelly Building property or they would be subject to arrest for trespassing. People who remained standing on the property after multiple public address announcements were arrested. As arrests were made, certain crowd members began throwing rocks towards officers. As this criminal activity occurred, the crowd also blocked all lanes of traffic on East Burnside Street, not allowing vehicles to pass by. Several people in this group wore helmets and gas masks as well as carried shields.”

Police say they declared the event an unlawful assembly using public address announcements, telling protesters to leave immediately.

In a press release sent out early Saturday, Police said “Despite the public address announcements, the crowd continued to block traffic on East Burnside Street and several continued to trespass on the Kelly Building property. At 10:05 p.m., certain members of the group began taking concrete pieces off of a retaining wall nearby the Kelly Building. These people then smashed the concrete on the ground into smaller pieces which were thrown at officers. Certain people in the crowd shined lasers at officers, which can cause permanent eye damage. Several public address announcements were made regarding this criminal behavior, however it continued for a couple more hours.”

Police say that during this time arrests were made.

According to police, they arrested someone who was shining a laser at the Portland Police Bureau’s air unit.

Police continue describing the event “At 12:10 a.m., individuals in the crowd gathered outside of the Kelly Building began throwing or launching frozen or hardboiled eggs, rocks, and commercial grade fireworks at officers positioned in the parking lot. This ongoing criminal activity created an extremely dangerous situation. Public address announcements were continually made directing the group to disperse to the east. At 1 a.m., both Oregon State Police and PPB officers began dispersing the crowd to the east.

As the officers dispersed the crowd, rocks, bottles, and explosives were continually launched at officers. Because of the danger posed by these projectiles, officers used crowd control munitions as they moved the group. Pool noodles (photo) were filled with nails by members of the group and placed on the roadway in an effort to damage police vehicle tires. One police vehicle suffered extensive tire damage.”

Police say during the evening 24 arrests were made.
