PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Police are asking for help identifying a man they say was involved in an assault June 29 during demonstrations that turned violent in downtown Portland.

According to police, eight people were treated by medics, including three police officers, and three people were hospitalized during the march through downtown.

Officers report people in the crowd had weapons, including collapsible batons and guns.

The suspect wanted in the assault was wearing a mask and has a neck tattoo, according to police. The man in photos shared by law enforcement has blond hair and a nose piercing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Anthony Merrill at anthony.merrill@portlandoregon.gov or at (503) 823-4033.

Police have made three arrests in connection to the violence that occurred June 29.

Gage Halupowski, one of the people arrested, was arraigned in court Wednesday on charges including assault in the second degree, attempted assault of a public safety officer, interfering with a peace officer, and unlawful use of a weapon. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and is due back in court in August.

Police have released multiple images trying to identify suspects since the protests.
