PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - After a month of nightly demonstrations in the Portland metro area, police say they've become more destructive.
During a protest near City Hall Sunday evening, people could be seen climbing the building then taking down security cameras.
Police say the rise in vandalism and violence goes back to last Thursday when protesters barricaded the doors of the North Precinct building and lit part of it on fire while people were still inside.
The crowd also damaged several businesses in that area.
On Friday night, demonstrators attempted to block the doors of the Justice Center with plastic road barricades. They also spray painted some of the cameras on the building.
Demonstrators also tried to block the doors of the Central Precinct.
Officers say there were several fake calls to police dispatch as well.
FOX 12 has reached to the Portland Police Bureau to see if there were any arrests made Sunday night. Police said they will release information later Monday afternoon.
