PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — One of the people arrested during the August 17 protests in Portland now faces felony charges stemming from his alleged actions that day.
Alexander Dial was indicted by a 7-person grand jury Tuesday on a felony riot charge along with 2nd- and 4th-degree assault plus using a stun gun, tear gas or mace, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said.
The indictment alleges he engaged “in tumultuous and violent conduct” that “created a grave risk of causing public alarm,” that he used a dangerous weapon to hurt someone and that he “recklessly discharged” a stun gun.
The DA’s office said this is a separate criminal complaint from his previous charges.
Investigators continue to look into the events of that day. Anyone with information is asked to call PPB’s Detective Division at 503.823.0400 or submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Oregon at 503.823.4357.
