PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Separate from Tuesday’s rallies at Portland State University, against the Supreme Court’s draft opinion suggesting the court would overturn Roe v. Wade, unrest on Portland’s streets left some downtown businesses damaged.
Demonstrators smashed windows at the Portland Exchange, based at the Hilton at SW Jefferson and Second. There’s also graffiti on nearby buildings.
Police arrested one man, 31-year-old Luke Anderson, on charges of reckless burning and disorderly conduct.
Witnesses said shortly before the vandalism, a crowd near the site was dressed in all black with their faces covered. A KOIN 6 News crew saw another similarly dressed crowd interrupt the rally at PSU.
TriMet announced due to demonstrations, Lines 2, 10 and 14 to Portland from SW Main and Second to SW Jefferson and Sixth have no service.
