Four People Arrested During Sunday Afternoon Protests

Portland Police Bureau - 06/03/18 

On Sunday June 3, 2018, four people were arrested during multiple protest events held in Downtown Portland. The protest events were held in Terry Schrunk Plaza, Chapman and Lownsdale Squares, and the surrounding blocks over the course of several hours. The four arrests were made at a variety of locations due to criminal behavior.

The intent of law enforcement today was to provide a safe environment for all participants, non-participants, and community members while ensuring the peaceful exercise of the First Amendment.

During today's demonstrations, Federal Protective Service and a Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Deputy deployed pepper spray during two separate incidents when multiple people were involved in assaultive behavior. There were no other significant police actions taken today. Throughout the event members of the competing protest groups were observed deploying pepper spray and throwing projectiles, including fireworks, bottles, rocks, and ball bearings (photogaphs of several items attached to this release).

Portland Fire and Rescue provided on scene medical evaluations to several people, but no one requested or required further medical attention and no one was transported to area hospitals by ambulance.

There were no reports of officers or deputies suffering injuries during today's events.

Throughout the afternoon, the Portland Police Bureau provided information and updates on Twitter, including photos of the weapons and items seized throughout the day:

"The intent of our presence today was to provide a safe environment for all participants, non-participants, and community members while ensuring the peaceful exercise of the First Amendment," said Chief Danielle Outlaw.
