Three arrested during Sunday's clashing rallies
Three people were arrested Sunday afternoon during competing rallies in Portland's Waterfront Park.
Police said a 16-year-old boy was arrested for second degree disorderly conduct and a felony probation warrant for second-degree burglary, reckless burning and criminal mischief. He was booked into the Donald E. Long Detention Home.
Police also arrested 24-year-old Jonny Perez for second-degree disorderly conduct, interfering with a police officer and third-degree escape. Perez was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail and will be arraigned Monday.
Police also issued a criminal citation to 21-year-old Tusitala Toese on a charge of second-degree disorderly conduct. Toese was treated at an area hospital for an injury he suffered during Sunday's rally clashes.
The arrests came as a few hundred people gathered in two groups in the park, one for a Patriot Prayer "March for Freedom," and a counter-protest organized by Portland Stands United Against Hate, a coalition of anti-hate groups.
The march and rally began at about 2 p.m., Aug. 6, and stayed mostly peaceful. There were several clashes between the two groups, with punches and pepper spray dousing some of the people involved.
Police kept a distance from the rallies, and set up a place where injured people could get medical treatment at Portland Fire and Rescue Station Number 1.
