Group Break Windows and Blocks Traffic During Portland March

On Friday, July 1, 2022, at about 9:00p.m., a group gathered in Peninsula Park. At about 10:30p.m., the group began marching out of the park in the street, blocking traffic on North Rosa Parks Way and on North Albina Avenue. Within a few minutes, Portland officers discovered windows broken at a commercial property in the 6400 block of North Albina Street.

The Portland Police Bureau used a mobile loudspeaker to announce to the crowd that the incident was an unlawful assembly. The announcements were also sent via Twitter. The group began to disperse and left the area a short time later.

Officers documented the damage to the property, which was a vacant former coffee shop. No other damage has been documented. One person who was recording video of the march reported after the event that she was assaulted by a suspect. Those crimes are under investigation. No arrests have been made.

Officers continued to patrol the area until about 11:30p.m. No additional information was made available by officials at this time.
