Several people arrested, weapons seized during protest in downtown Portland, Oregon

On Sunday June 4, 2017, several people were arrested during multiple protest events held in Downtown Portland. The three protest events were held in Terry Schrunk Plaza, City Hall, and Chapman Square and over the course of several hours, 14 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. Groups at Portland's City Hall and Terry Schrunk Plaza were largely peaceful, while a group at Chapman Square required significant attention from law enforcement.

During the course of police action, in response to a significant amount of projectiles being thrown, less lethal munitions, including "pepper ball" and aerial distraction devices (ADD) were used by police.

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