According to police, more than three people were arrested and several others were reported wounded, in the fights of the members of Antifa and other leftist groups and members of the Proud Boys and other conservatives around downtown Portland, Ore., on Saturday.
The three people were arrested and charged on assault and harassment.
Those three people arrested from the spot, were identified as Gage Halupowski, 23, who was charged with multiple counts of assault, including on a public safety officer; James K. Stocks, 21, who was charged with harassment; and Maria C. Dehart, 23, who was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment.
Andy Ngo Attacked:
A most-watched video in the incident a journalist get objects thrown at him, including “vegan” milkshakes that were supposedly distributed to antifa members. Andy Ngo is seen in a video with cuts on his face and around his eye, and white, splotchy substances in his hair and on his shirt.
“I just got beat up by the crowd, no police at all,” Ngo said, adding that he was in the middle of the street and that “they stole my GoPro” camera. He said he was punched several times in my face and my head” and that he was bleeding.
Ngo breathing for a minute, blinking his eyes and then looked around as people could be heard asking him questions.
“Where the hell were all of you?” Ngo asked them. Ngo said protesters threw milkshakes on him in addition to punching him.
Andy Ngo posted, “I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally. They’re promising “physical confrontation” & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
What Portland Police Said:
“During today’s events, there were multiple assaults reported, as well as projectiles thrown at demonstrators and officers,” the Portland police said in a statement. “There were also reports of pepper spray and bear spray being used by people in the crowd. Officers deployed pepper spray during the incident. There were reports of individuals throwing ‘milkshakes’ with a substance mixed in that was similar to a quick-drying cement. One subject was arrested for throwing a substance during the incident.”
“Demonstration events are very fluid in nature and the management of these events is complex,” Assistant Chief Chris Davis said in a statement. “There are hundreds of peaceful free speech events in the City in a given year that do not result in violence. Unfortunately, today some community members and officers were injured. We are actively investigating these incidents to hold those responsible accountable.”
