Portland Police Seeking Information on Rioters
Vandalism Attacks Still Under Investigation

On November 26, 2020 at about 1:22 a.m., Portland Police responded to reports of people breaking windows and committing other acts of vandalism along Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard. Multiple callers reported seeing people dressed in black clothing moving west along Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard breaking out windows as they went.

Responding officers contacted people and made some arrests. The investigation into these crimes is still underway. Portland Police are working in the service of the community to gather information and build cases against the people responsible for these attacks on businesses and other private property. Property in the Sunnyside, Richmond, and Buckman neighborhoods were impacted that morning. Similar attacks against property occurred throughout the city days before, including in the Hosford-Abernethy, Laurelhurst and Hollywood neighborhoods.

Damage along Southeast Hawthorne and Northeast Sandy Boulevards was particularly extensive and impacted dozens of local businesses.

Portland Police encourage any victim who has not yet reported damage such as broken windows, graffiti, or other property damage to make those reports. Crime victims can make reports online or call the non-emergency number 503-823-3333.

Portland Police would also be interested to collect video that captured any part of these incidents.
