Mostly Peaceful March Turns Destructive Again
Portland Police Bureau is asking for assistance

On Sunday, June 26, 2022, at 8:12p.m., Central Precinct officers responded to a group of people marching through Southeast Portland, near the areas of Southeast Belmont Street and Southeast Hawthorne Street. The march was a splinter group of a larger, mostly peaceful "demonstration" which took place within Laurelhurst Park.

Officers were made aware of vandalism by this group of marchers to local businesses in the area. When officers responded, the crowd began throwing projectiles at officers, including commercial-grade fireworks, paint balloons and large rocks. Officers were able to recover a commercial-grade firework which did not seem to successfully detonate along the march route.

At one point during the event, Central Precinct officers attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle which had been observed to be involved in the march, impeding traffic along major roads.

During the traffic stop, a group rushed toward officers, throwing fireworks and rocks at them and their vehicles. One rock made contact with a patrol vehicle, shattering the windshield.

Based on the limited number of officers available citywide and the fact that police response to emergency calls for service was being significantly impacted, officers left the area and continued to monitor the situation.

PPB says that individuals who engage in violent activity or property destruction will be investigated and are subject to arrest and prosecution.

Arrests do not always happen. PPB will continue to conduct follow-up investigations, supposedly make arrests, and forward cases to the Multnomah County District Attorney for prosecution.

The Portland Police Bureau is asking businesses and community members who have surveillance cameras to review footage to see if they captured any evidence that may assist with the investigations. If anyone has useful footage, they're asked to e-mail PPB and reference case number 22-170640.
