COURTESY PHOTO: KOIN 6 NEWS - The Multnomah County Democrats' headquarters in Northeast Portland was vandalized on Nov. 8, 2020.Ten people are facing felony charges after several incidents of civil unrest in Portland.

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced Friday, June 4, that they were charged with various felony crimes after three incidents of civil unrest. The crimes occurred on: Nov. 8, 2020; Jan. 20, 2020; and April 23, 2021.

Three people are accused of causing property damage on Nov. 8, when a small group of people marched from Laurelhurst Park in Southeast Portland to the Multnomah County Democrats' headquarters in the 3500 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard. The building was tagged with graffiti and the group broke "several of the building's windows," the Portland Police Bureau said in a release.

That damage was estimated to be more than $1,000.

Maximilian Jennings, James Prettyman and Thomas Moll-Rocek all were arrested that night and now face charges for their alleged crimes.

The charges for all three are: one count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree and one count of criminal mischief in the second degree.

Six more people are accused of causing property damage stemming from events that took place Jan. 20, 2020 — Inauguration Day.

Crowds of people across Portland turned violent on Inauguration Day, smashing windows at the Democratic Party of Oregon and later targeting the Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility where federal officers declared an unlawful assembly.

The Democratic Party of Oregon building suffered an estimated $1,000 worth of damage.

The six suspects are identified as Kai-Ave Douvia, Austin Nuchraksa, Nicole Rose, Darrell Kimberlin, Jean Paris and Kyle Romstad. They all were arrested that night and face charges. Douvia also is accused of causing property damage at a Starbucks on Nov. 02, 2020, according to the Multnomah County DA's Office.

Their charges are as follows:

• Douvia: One count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree and two counts of criminal mischief in the second degree.

• Nuchraksa: One count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree, one count of criminal mischief in the second degree and four counts of unlawful possession of a destructive device.

• Rose: One count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree and one count of criminal mischief in the second degree.

• Kimberlin: One count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree and one count of criminal mischief in the second degree.

• Paris: One count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree and one count of criminal mischief in the second degree.

• Romstad: One count of riot, one count of criminal mischief in the first degree and one count of criminal mischief in the second degree.

One more man is accused of throwing a rock through a window at a coffee shop on Northwest 23rd Avenue in Portland on April 23. That night, around 75 people dressed in black marched from Couch Park through Northwest Portland, smashing windows and vandalizing businesses during another "autonomous demonstration" march.

Events escalated to the point of police declaring a riot — which occurred after windows at a Starbucks were smashed.

Sean Lopez is believed to have thrown a rock through the coffee shop windows. He also is accused of throwing a rock at an apartment complex window that same night after he saw a resident using a cellphone to record what was going on. Records say the rock broke a window and nearly hit the person.

Lopez was arrested on May 29, after he was spotted at a demonstration downtown. He now faces charges including one count of attempted assault in the second degree, one count of burglary in the first degree, one count of unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of criminal mischief in the first degree.
