Portland Police broke up a group that vandalized a building in North Portland Friday night.
Around 9 p.m., police report 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, 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. If anyone has information about the crimes, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and reference case number 22-175841.
