Police in Portland, Ore., have reportedly seized a number of weapons from opposing groups of demonstrators in the city amid a far-right rally in the town attended by a number of white nationalist groups.

A spokesperson for Portland police did not immediately return a request for comment when contacted for comment by The Hill. A department spokeswoman said in a video released on social media that several weapons including metal poles, shields, and bear spray had been confiscated, but gave no information on the number of seized items or any arrests.

The article goes on to state the following:

Officers on the ground and in specialized “sound trucks” with loudspeakers advised demonstrators to clear the roads and obey laws Saturday afternoon as the two groups remained at a distance, exchanging taunts and separated by law enforcement.

In a tweet, Portland police reported: “Officers have seized weapons from multiple groups, including bear spray, shields, and metal and wooden poles.”

In another, police reported, “PPB and our partners are here to protect everyone’s safety while facilitating everyone’s 1st Amendment right to gather and speak. It is the foundation of our democracy and critical to Portland’s identity.”
