Police in Portland, Oregon arrested two people during a violent weekend of destructive Antifa protests.
Businesses were vandalized and spray painted after reportedly about 150 antifa members marched through Portland’s Pearl District on Saturday night.
KOIN-TV reports customers were inside some of the businesses as the rioters smashed windows and that some employees and area residents were threatened.
Images show vandalized windows of several businesses, including Starbucks, Chipotle, and Umpqua Bank.

The station says the march was to protest “immigration policy under the Biden administration” according to posts on social media.
Overnight, #antifa destroyed numerous businesses in Portland's Pearl District as part of a pre-planned riot. People were inside this Chipotle at 1201 NW Lovejoy when antifa attacked the building.

KOIN-TV reports that one of those arrested on a criminal mischief charge was 31-year-old Darrell Kimberlin, who has a history of being arrested at protests.
He was issued a criminal citation and released due to current COVID-19 booking restrictions at the Multnomah County Detention Center. This is the third time Kimberlin has been arrested during Portland protests. He was also arrested on Jan. 20, 2021 and Sept. 28, 2020.
I guess the third time's the charm? Maybe not, as he has already been released (again).
