PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Protesters sprayed graffiti and smashed windows at several businesses in Portland’s Pearl District, and police said they arrested two people before the two-hour incident ended.
KOIN-TV reports that dozens participated in the protest late Saturday. Social media posts suggested the gathering was organized to protest federal immigration policy.
Protesters smashed windows at a Chipotle restaurant while customers were inside. Area residents shouted at the protesters from their balconies to “Go Home” as protesters chanted that police “Go Home.”
The Portland Police Bureau said officers arrested 31-year-old Darell Kimberlin for investigation of criminal mischief and a 17-year-old male juvenile for investigation of interfering with a peace officer. Kimberlin was cited and released and the juvenile was released to his parents’ custody.
