A Black Lives Matter rioter on the run from Portland police is reportedly begging supporters on social media for money.
25-year-old Marquise "Keese" Lee Love allegedly delivered a running kick the already bleeding head of a truck driver in a downtown Portland riot on Sunday night, after the man was pulled from his truck by activists.
The attack was caught on video before Love fled the scene. Police have named Love as a suspect in the brutal beating as officials have attempted to locate and contact him "as there is probable cause for his arrest," but Love remains at large.
Since, Love has been requesting money on Snapchat, The Sun reported.
"Might go to jail for murder tonight for a racist when all I did was fight him look it up on twitter put money on my books and come see me," Love captioned a top-less selfie with his full name and date of birth listed.
"On the books" is a reference to money held for inmates for the prison commissary, the Daily Mail suggested. The Sun wrote that Love is seeking to "fund his flight."
In screenshotted chat logs, Love reportedly alleged that the driver had "tried to run everyone over" and that's when Love "ran to protect him." The video allegedly cut out the moment the driver called Love the N-word, he continued, and only filmed the assault.
"It didn't happen like that but it's okay," Love concluded.
The victim, now identified as Adam Haner through a GoFundMe page, was knocked unconscious and suffered two black eyes. Haner was active on his Facebook on Sunday, just a few hours before the altercation with Love, sharing a political post that read: "George Floyd was a 46-year old felon, high on Fentanyl, and he got 4 televised funerals and 70 days of riots. What does 5-year old Cannon Hinnant get?"
Love has since deactivated his Facebook profile, which read: "Living life to the fullest. Keep lurking."
The New York Post reported that Love has been arrested at least seven times over the past eight years in Washington County, the sheriff's office confirmed.
His lengthy rap sheet reveals a long criminal history, including charges for domestic violence, interfering with public transportation, criminal trespass, driving without a license, and providing false information in connection with the transfer of a firearm. He has violated probation and has been forced to accept paternity over his school-aged child, records show.
The majority of those arrests didn’t result in prosecution by District Attorney Kevin Barton, a spokesperson stated.
In 2012, Love was busted for failing to buy a ticket at a train station despite being temporarily banned from the system. He was also apprehended a month later for the possession of a stolen bicycle, local police reported.
"Our attorneys reviewed each case carefully and independently and found there was insufficient evidence to prove the charges except for the November 2012 case," spokesman Stephen Mayer told the New York Post.
Love was sentenced to 18 months’ probation and a $500 fine, but later had $400 converted to 40 hours of community service, a court clerk said. His probation was extended twice, through March 1, 2016, and he still owes the court $25 toward his fine and another $7 for a collection fee, the clerk added.
The manhunt for Love is still underway.
