Portland police make 29 arrests after declaring unlawful assembly at Penumbra Kelly Building

On Sunday, groups gathered for protests in Portland following a night of clashes between a pro-Trump rally and counter-demonstrators downtown.

PORTLAND, Ore — Portland police declared an unlawful assembly Sunday night at the Penumbra Kelly Building and made 29 arrests after people threw rocks, eggs and other items at officers, the Portland Police Bureau reported Monday morning.

On Sunday, groups gathered for demonstrations in Portland following a night of clashes between a pro-Trump rally and counter-demonstrators downtown. A homicide investigation is underway after there was a fatal shooting near Saturday night's protests downtown.

At 6 p.m., a group of about 150 people called Portland United for Justice and Equity gathered for a protest at Pioneer Courthouse Square. They said their protest would be non-violent.

Another group met at Laurelhurst Park at 8 p.m. and marched around 9:30 p.m to the Penumbra Kelly Building on East Burnside Street, the building shared by the Portland police and the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office. This group is calling for the abolition of the police force and prison system.

Upon their arrival at the building which is home to Portland police's Southeast Precinct, police warned the group not to come on the property.

Around 10:45 p.m., police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly "due to criminal activity," a tweet from PPB said. In a Monday morning press release, police said people in the crowd threw rocks, eggs and other items at officers. Protesters were asked to leave immediately.

Just before 11 p.m., police rushed out into the crowd and began making arrests, according to a tweet from New York Times correspondent Mike Baker.

PPB released information Monday morning for the 29 arrests made overnight. Police said two people arrested had loaded handguns. Others had knives, rocks and at least one had an expandable baton.

Portland is now entering its 14th week of nightly protests since the killing of George Floyd.

Earlier in the day Sunday, Mayor Ted Wheeler, Police Chief Chuck Lovell and Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt spoke at a press conference condemning the violence in downtown Portland Saturday night.

When asked about what he and other leaders will do to stop the ongoing violence and vandalism at protests in Portland, Mayor Wheeler talked for several minutes about reforms and a 19-point plan but nothing specific about a plan to stop the counter-demonstration violence seen the last two weekends.

Also Sunday, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown rolled out a unified law enforcement plan to bring violence to an end and protect free speech in Portland. The plan includes a community forum for Mayor Wheeler, protest organizers and community.
