A mass gathering blocked East Burnside Street for several hours. People associated with the gathering threw projectiles towards the Penumbra Kelly Building and officers.
Some targeted arrests were made and support vehicles used to block vehicular traffic were cited/and or towed.
On September 3, 2020, a group began by gathering at Laurelhurst Park located at Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard and Southeast Stark Street. About 9:22 p.m., a march began in the street to the area of the Penumbra Kelly Building located in the 4700 block of East Burnside Street.
As the group marched in the street, several group members were seen wearing helmets, gas masks, and carrying shields. Support vehicles also traveled with the group as they moved towards the Kelly Building. As the group arrived at the Kelly Building, East Burnside Street was blocked in both directions and group members stood in the street.
At 9:35 p.m., the group was told over loudspeaker to remain off the property of the Kelly Building. If the group did not remain off the property, they would be trespassing and subject to arrest, this included all members of the press. Some group members came on to the property, while others threw projectiles such as rocks and plastic water bottles towards the Kelly Building from the street. Group members continued to throw projectiles, some of which hit vehicles parked in the Kelly Building parking lot. Others were seen spray painting the west side of the Kelly Building.
Despite several warnings, the group’s criminal actions continued on. At 11:25 p.m., the group was told over loudspeaker to stop throwing projectiles towards the Kelly Building. Failure to adhere to the order may subject them to arrest, citation, or crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons. At 11:58 p.m., targeted arrests were made of subjects who continued to throw rocks towards the building, parked vehicles, and officers.
At 12:25 a.m., a vehicle traveling eastbound on East Burnside Street, drove through the crowd, narrowly missing people in the group. The vehicle was later stopped by officers and cited.
Several support vehicles associated with the group were positioned in the street. The support vehicles’ main purpose were to block traffic. Some support vehicles did not have license plates and some had duct tape covering the license plates. Because the vehicles were left in the street to block vehicular traffic several of the vehicles were cited and one was towed.
The group was mostly dispersed by 2 a.m.
Portland Police did not use any crowd control munitions or CS gas.
Two arrests were made during the event. These individuals were booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center:
*O’Neill, Devlin Sean, 29-year-old, Criminal Mischief II, Disorderly Conduct II
*Lundbom, Amanda, 37-year-old, Interfering with a Peace Officer, Failure to Display Drivers License
