Portland police have released photos of three suspects in connection to the violent assault on journalist Andy Ngo:
Ngo, who was present in Portland to report on the civil disturbance, was viciously attacked by the far-left extremists and had to be admitted to the hospital for several injuries including a brain hemorrhage. He has since left the hospital.
Of the individuals in the photographs, only one appears without a mask, while the others wear traditional black Antifa garb with their faces obscured. The police have asked for the public’s help in identifying the individuals.
Police have also noted that the violent protestors were mixing quick dry cement with milkshakes in order to further harm their targets with potential chemical burns.
According to police the far-left extremists also used and concealed weapons including “collapsible batons, projectiles, and firearms, to name a few.”
The official Portland city website states: “The Portland Police Bureau’s Detective Division continues to investigate multiple criminal acts committed during demonstration events on Saturday, June 29, 2019. Investigators are releasing several photographs to the public of individuals believed to be involved in criminal activity. Anyone with information about those pictured in these photographs should contact the Police Bureau.”
The Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler replied to the incident happening in the city’s streets earlier today on Twitter.
