Grant Chisholm was hit in the head and hospitalized for two days.

In the days following the assault, Portland activist Jessie Sponberg claimed he had a role in the assault and turned himself into Port of Portland police, who did not arrest Sponberg because they were not convinced he was the person who punched Chisholm.
