Radicals breach Portland Police Station Perimeter in attempt to demobilize police response to riot

Radicals in Portland gained access to a police vehicle yard and breached the fence to disable several vehicles aimed at hindering the department’s response time to calls. Police suspect it was a coordinated effort to slow police response as fellow radicals attacked the Penumbra Kelly building in Northeast Portland.

On April 12, 2021, at about 9:44 p.m., a passerby heard sounds of breaking glass near the 7200 block of North Philadelphia Avenue near the historic building that houses Portland Police Bureau traffic offices.

Responding officers arrived to find that suspects cut through a chain link fence to access a parking lot, then broke out windows, slashed tires, and broke windows of several police vehicles. The suspects fled prior to police arrival.
