Police in Oregon reportedly arrested at least two people after several protesters broke windows at Portland State University’s public safety office and a nearby Starbucks and threw a “flammable liquid” inside.

Officers were able to stop the “possible arson,” the Multnomah County Sheriff’s office said in a tweet.

Police declared an unlawful assembly and the group was ordered to disperse. 

Officers said they had been concerned that the march was a “direct action” event, which in the past have also led to vandalism, KATU-TV reported.

The group had marched from a nearby park at around 9 p.m., chanting Jason Washington’s name, a man who was fatally shot by campus police in 2018, according to KOIN-TV.

Officers had warned protesters as they marched they could be “subject you to arrest, citation, or crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons” if they engage in vandalism, FOX 12 reported.
