Court date pushed back for Portland protest assault suspect

2020 Protests

Marquise Love is charged with assault, coercion and felony riot

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Marquise Love, the man who is accused of kicking a man in the head in during a protest in mid-August, was scheduled to his first court appearance on Wednesday afternoon, but it has been pushed back another week.

Love is charged with assault, coercion and felony riot. Police say he beat and kicked victim Adam Haner following an incident in downtown Portland on August 16. According to officers, Haner was trying to protect someone from being robbed.

After turning himself in to police on August 20, Love was originally expected to appear in court on August 24. However, his defense attorneys requested the extension his first court appearance pushed back to Wednesday, September 2 — but on Wednesday morning, KOIN 6 News got word that the court date was pushed back yet again and is now scheduled for September 15.

Love’s bail is set at $260,000.

Portland police announced they are looking for more suspects in the attack. They say members of the group threatened, assaulted and robbed two women and helped beat Haner.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest. Submit a tip online or call 503.823.4357.
