Portland Police Bureau officers arrested five people in connection to yet another night of rioting in the city. Antifa rioters set fires near the justice center and vandalized multiple businesses in the area.

“At about 9:13 p.m., people pushed a dumpster against the Justice Center near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street,” Portland Police Bureau officials said in a written statement. “People tried to get a fire started in the dumpster. Many people approached the Justice Center holding umbrellas to obscure their actions and movements.”

Police officials report that rioters attempted to pry open the doors on the north side of the justice center building. Rioters began assaulting officers with frozen water bottles, glass bottles, eggs, and metal spikes. They also attacked officers with mortar-style fireworks, officials stated.

Antifa rioters wearing all black and carrying black umbrellas set off smoke bombs to obscure their activities.

Rioters moved on from the courthouse to attack multiple downtown businesses and city hall.

Portland police officers eventually moved in and made five arrests.

Portland Police Bureau officials report the following arrests:

30-year-old Elizabeth Hall ? Criminal Mischief II
30-year-old Emery Hall ? Criminal Mischief II, Escape III
23-year-old Rhiannon Millar-Griffin ? Criminal Mischief I, Riot
22-year-old Jacob Myers ? Criminal Mischief I
21-year-old Jarrid Huber ? Arson I, Criminal Mischief I, Criminal Mischief II x 5, Riot
