Zamora, 33, was arrested on Tuesday on a riot charge, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, according to officials. He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Zamora’s charges are related to an incident on Southwest Naito Parkway near the Morrison Bridge in which a group was caught on camera, chasing after a bus full of right-wing protesters and smashing several of its windows.

Officers arrested 24-year-old Hannah M. Ahern on Wednesday. She was cited on a warrant issued against her by PPB investigators in Tigard.

Ahern faces one count of 2nd-degree disorderly conduct related to protest activity that took place near Southwest Oak Street and Southwest 3rd Avenue.

Authorities have now made 15 arrests in connection to the Aug. 17 protests. The investigation is ongoing.

If anyone has information regarding the Aug. 17 protests or the demonstrations on May 1 and June 29, please contact PPB at crimetips@portlandoregon.gov.
