Portland Police made multiple arrests overnight on Friday as the Oregon city nears 100 days of demonstrations against racism and police brutality.

“Yes, we have made multiple arrests tonight,” a Portland Police spokesman told Reuters in an emailed statement after police had declared a gathering as “unlawful.”

“Officers will continue to make targeted arrests of those who fail to adhere to this order. The gathering at N Lombard St and N Campbell Ave has been declared an unlawful assembly,” police said earlier on Twitter.
