PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police arrested 25 people during the May Day riot in downtown Portland Monday afternoon.

The May Day march started off around noon with a peaceful rally organized by the Portland May Day Coalition, followed by a march at 3:30 p.m.

Police reported that rocks were thrown at officers around 4 p.m., and then incidents between police and protesters started to escalate.

The PPB suggested that the permitted marchers separate from the “anarchist” group performing acts of vandalism. 

Just before 4:30 p.m., PPB canceled the May Day march permit, citing actions by anarchists. Marchers were asked to leave the streets or be subject to arrest.

Police continued to clash with anarchists, reporting that anarchists started a fire near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Morrison Street and that they had thrown incendiary devices including fireworks and Molotov cocktails at police.

Due to the actions of anarchists, which included random acts of vandalism to downtown businesses, cars, and public and private property, police said the event had turned into a riot. Riot police responded to the scene and arrests were made.

Many of the arrests were made in the area of City Hall.

Twenty-two adults were arrested during the riot:
