PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - The 25-year-old man accused of a violent assault in downtown Portland Sunday night has been arrested.

Portland police say Marquise Lee Love turned himself in Friday morning after detectives and the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office coordinated with his attorney.

Love was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of second-degree assault, coercion, and riot. His bail is set at $260,000.

Police identified Love as a suspect in an assault that was caught on camera and went viral on social media after it was posted Sunday. The attack took place during a protest in downtown Portland.

According to police, the string of events may have started around Southeast 4th Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street, when the victim, identified as Adam Haner, was helping a woman who had some of her things stolen. Haner's girlfriend, Tammie Martin, got out of Haner's truck and was tackled to the ground.

Then, around 10:30 p.m., police said they responded to a call near Southwest Taylor Street and Southwest Broadway, just a few blocks from the initial altercation. Witnesses told police that people chased a white Ford truck, which crashed at the intersection.

Video from social media then shows Haner out of the truck and pushed to the ground.

According to police, a man caught on video hitting Haner in the street is Love. In some footage, Haner is seen bloodied and unconscious.

Haner was taken to an area hospital for treatment to his serious injuries. After Haner was released from the hospital, both Haner and Martin spoke to FOX 12 about what they experienced.

On Thursday, police asked for help locating a possible witness to the assault. Police say investigators Investigators have identified the witness.

"I am pleased the suspect in this case turned himself in and appreciate all of the efforts to facilitate this safe resolution," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "Thank you to all of the members of the public who have provided information and tips to our investigators. Your assistance is very much appreciated."

Love is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday afternoon.

I’m surprised the Multnomah County DA hasn’t already dropped the charges. He’s probably waiting for media attention to die down.

Does anyone know who his lawyer is?


Haven't seen in the local press any reference to his past criminal history. According to articles in the New York times and other more national media it is extensive.


The Soros minions most likely already posted bail and are arranging a top flight law team as I type this....


They have been screaming and marching or whatever you want to call it for equality for months.

But in Oregon equality means the liberal way or NO way!


Oregon does the catch and release program unless you are white!

Just curious

Times have changed, because they didn't used to do that.

BLM has millions in their bailout funds and I'm sure he'll be out, get a slap on the wrist by the DA, and be at the next riot. rinse and repeat


An acid wash would be better...


2nd degree assault? ORS would call for this to be 1st degree. The DA should be recalled for this kind of nonsense.


If the leadership had been on their toes they would have organized another Vortex I. Governor McCall's Pot Party avoided the imminent violent protests due to the Kent State shootings.


As I recall, Vortex 1 was to get (me included), hippies, out of town while Portland hosted the National American Legion Convention with a potential visit by Pres. Nixon. Enough of the brilliant move by Governor Tom McCall versus where we are today. You use the word "leadership" but we have NO leadership in Portland. Our Politicians are pathetic wimps or they hate the Police or they want to hide their heads and wait for this to pass. I agree with your statement but using the word "leadership" in the same sentence as Portland politicians is an oxymoron!


The question is what sort of misdemeanor will the DA charge love with...


Where are these savages coming from? And why can't they be stopped? Is the USA turning into a barbaric, 3rd-world type, lawless country? Or is it just Portland?


Another democrat off the street, but it's Portland, so he will be back out there very soon.


Lock him up and throw away the key. Worthless


Good, glad he's been arrested...and federal courthouses are closed downtown because of a threat. Where's the story on this?

Just curious

Probably because they don't want the Fed's back.


Assault II is a mandatory minimum of 70 months in prison under Measure 11. Have fun punk.


Oh, I pray it is!


I assume They will likely drop the riot and coercion charges and nail him with the assault 2.

Hopefully this guy will spend many nights in state prison.
