More arrests, indictments in Aug. 17 Portland protests
Five men have been indicted on felony riot charges and police have also arrested two additional people — all related to the dueling Aug. 17 Portland protests in downtown Portland.
The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office said Friday that five people between the ages of 21 and 51 face felony riot charges, as well as various other charges.
Their names are Alexander Dial, Zachary Lange, Richard Klimek, Evan Duke and Antonio Zamora.
Zamora, 33, was arrested on Tuesday on a riot charge, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, according to officials. He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.
Zamora's charges are related to an incident on Southwest Naito Parkway near the Morrison Bridge in which a group was caught on camera, chasing after a bus full of right-wing protesters and smashing several of its windows.
Officers arrested 24-year-old Hannah M. Ahern on Wednesday. She was cited on a warrant issued against her by Portland police investigators in Tigard.
Ahern faces one count of 2nd-degree disorderly conduct related to protest activity that took place near Southwest Oak Street and Southwest 3rd Avenue.
Authorities have now made 15 arrests in connection to the Aug. 17 protests. The investigation is ongoing.
