from The Daily Caller:

Far-left activists entered a Portland suburb on Saturday where they traveled to a local police precinct before being forcibly chased out of the area by law enforcement officials.

“Portland Police have directed people to stay off the property at the Penumbra Kelly Building property. Anyone who enters the property may be subject to force or arrest,” Portland Police tweeted. “People in this unlawful assembly have thrown glass bottles at Portland Police and directed lasers at them. Anyone who does not disperse may be subject to force or arrest.”

Approximately 200 leftist activists showed up at the facility, which is part of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

“Antifa gathered in a residential area of Portland to attack a Portland Police building,” journalist Andy Ngo tweeted. “They’ve been pushed far back.”

Ngo added, “Antifa are trashing a southeast Portland residential neighborhood in an effort to slow down Portland Police who are moving them away from the facility they were attacking with glass bottles.”

The Portland Police Department released a lengthy statement about the night’s developments and said that people who identified themselves as “press” were throwing objects at police officers.

The department said:

…a group of about two hundred marched from Laurelhurst Park, blocking traffic lanes, to the Penumbra Kelly Building, 4735 East Burnside Street. The group stood blocking East Burnside Street, shined bright lights at Portland Police officers standing outside the building, directed lasers at the officers and eventually began throwing glass bottles at them. Vehicles blocked East Burnside Street from Northeast 47th Avenue to Northeast 50th Avenue.

A person in the crowd threw a glass jar or bottle filled with paint, which struck a Portland Police officer in the head. The officer was not injured.

Portland Police provided public address announcements directing people to remain off of the property of the Penumbra Kelly Building and to move away to the west. As people continued to throw glass bottles and other objects Portland Police declared that the assembly blocking East Burnside was unlawful and directed people to disperse.
