At least 13 people were arrested as far-right groups and far-left members of Antifa conducted dueling demonstrations in the center of Portland, Ore. Saturday.

Authorities did not immediately release details of the arrests. Earlier in the day, the Portland Police Bureau tweeted images of weapons it had seized from multiple groups, including bear spray, shields and metal and wooden poles.

The article goes on to state the following:

Police said one injured person was taken to a local hospital, but no further information about the victim was released. Three others had been evaluated by Portland fire medics. All the injuries were considered to be minor.

Police said demonstrators were throwing plastic water bottles at them as they were making an arrest.

(Scroll down to see videos from the protest, including a CNN interview Enrique Tarrio, the chairman of Proud Boys, who explains why the group is there.)

In the most recent video update (see it in the tweets below), Lieutenant Tina Jones, the public information officer for the Portland Police Bureau, provided the following information:

  • Demonstrations have been underway for nearly six hours. More than a thousand individuals have gathered in and around the downtown area, taking part in these events. 
  • While more details about law enforcement actions will be shared later in the day, at this time we are aware of at least 13 arrests.
  • Portland Fire medics are embedded with the Portland Police. We are aware of four individuals who have been evaluated by Portland Fire medics. This includes an individual whom officers came upon at Naito and Harvey Milk; and who was taken to a hospital.
  • This person was injured prior to officers arriving on scene.
  • Portland Fire medics report that all known injuries are considered to be minor.
  • Portland Police have liaison officers on the street to provide direct instructions and expectations to all groups demonstrating.  
  • This – and all law enforcement action – is done for everyone’s safety.
  • Some demonstrators have once again moved to the inner east side of the Willamette River.
  • Demonstrators may be on various downtown streets near the river on the west side, as well on bridges across the Willamette. 
  • Portland Police and law enforcement partners continue to focus on keeping  opposing groups separate, although there have been some interactions between individuals. 
  • MAX trains have just experienced their first service disruption of the day due to the demonstrations – trains are not running on the downtown transit mall. 
  • For the most current information about bus and MAX service, go to TriMet.org/alerts.

  1. What a biased report. Portland has had Anti-fa in their city for months attacking citizens and the major has told the police to stand down. The woman interviews the proud boys and makes it sound like they are the problem, not Anti-fa, then the news commentator pointed out that the Southern Poverty Law Center designates the Proud Boys as a hate group. Has she looked up the history of the Southern Poverty law Center, they put any right wing group or person as a hate group. They are totally corrupt. Perhaps, these people should do some research.
