PORTLAND, Ore. – The seven people arrested at a rally in Portland Sunday are expected in court Monday.

Two groups, Patriot Prayer Protestors and Antifa counter-protestors, clashed on the Portland waterfront Sunday. Police tried to separate the two, but the protest turned violent.

Video shows Antifa counter-protesters throwing cans and silly string at police officers.

Another video shows an Antifa member kicking a Trump supporter.

Portland police said some protesters were also throwing projectiles at officers. Two officers received minor injuries in the violence.

Police arrested seven people.

  • 27-year-old Tyler W. Bristow was arrested near Southwest Park Avenue and Southwest Taylor street on charges of Interfering with a Police Officer and Resist Arrest.
  • 37-year-old Chad Skjei was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street on charges of Interfering with a Police Officer, Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, and Attempt Theft in the Second Degree.
  • 18-year-old Thomas "Sarah" Wallace was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street on charges of Assault on a Police Officer (two counts) and Harassment.
  • 35-year-old Deaclan S. Lenartz was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street on charges of Interfering with a Police Officer and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
  • 42-year-old Naomi G. Seraphina was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street on charges of Interfering with a Police Officer and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
  • 27-year-old Alice E. Hall was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street on charges of Interfering with a Police Officer and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
  • 37-year-old Eli F. Richey was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street on a charge of Interfering with a Police Officer.

One Antifa counter-protestor said sometimes the violence is necessary.

“Sometime violence is a necessary act. Sometimes people in Antifa commit violence that I don't support, but I think self-defense is a responsible act,” said Rachel who identifies with Antifa.

After the Patriot Prayer rally turned violent, members moved across the river to Vancouver. There, someone captured a video of a truck suddenly accelerating near a crowd of Antifa protesters.

Two more people were arrested in Vancouver. Sources say the driver of the truck is one of them.
