Portland Police Bureau officials declared an “Autonomous Demonstration” to be a riot after protesters began vandalizing businesses and forcing their way into an occupied restaurant.

A social media post called for an “Autonomous Demonstration” at Couch Park in Portland, Oregon, on Friday night. The post called for demonstrators to “Bloc Up” — a call to wear black bloc to “make it difficult for police to identify lawbreakers,” police officials stated.

As demonstrators began blocking roadways, smashing windows, painting graffiti, and forcing their way into at least one occupied restaurant, police declared the incident to be a riot and ordered protesters to leave, Fox 12 Portland’s Drew Marine tweeted.

Police say rioters attacked one resident who attempted to film their march by throwing a rock through the homeowner’s window.

Much of the anger of the rioters appeared to target Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler who recently extended the city’s state of emergency order following the conviction of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.

“F**k Ted Wheeler,” demonstrators shouted as they marched past a restaurant and through the streets.

Police officials say officers made two arrested — Jacob A. Camello, 29, and Crystal M. Miranda, 29. Both face charges of Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, the report states. Camello reportedly also had items in his possession to facilitate criminal mischief.
