6 indicted on riot charges from May 1 protest in Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Six men have been indicted on charges related to a brawl between members of right- and left-wing groups outside a Portland bar on May 1 that left one woman unconscious.
The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday the men all face a single count of rioting.
They were all arrested within a week of each earlier this month in the run-up to dueling demonstrations in Portland between the same left- and right-wing groups.
The May 1 fight happened after dueling protests in downtown Portland to mark May Day.
A judge has granted the prosecutor’s request that all documents in the cases be sealed, citing ongoing investigation by police. All but one of the men also faces a lawsuit from the owner of the bar.
