A Minneapolis man is accused of "multiple acts of vandalism and violence, including throwing rocks at police" in connection to protests in Portland, Oregon, in August.
Adrian Ruben De Los Rios, 32, is charged with civil disorder in connection to the Aug. 5 incident, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a news release.
The release says a group of people blocked traffic on SE 106th Avenue outside of the Portland Police Bureau's East Precinct the night of Aug. 5. By 9:40 p.m., people started tearing off the boards that were protecting the glass windows of the building.
Police declared an unlawful assembly just before 10 p.m., and police told people to leave the area, the release says.
An officer inside the precinct saw De Los Rios throw "several chunks of concrete" at the glass and hitting the glass with a hammer, the release alleges. The same officer then saw him put a 2x4 in a trash can fire near the front door of the precinct.
Videos online allegedly show De Los Rios engaging in the acts he's accused of.
Police also allegedly witness De Los Rios throw "multiple baseball-size rocks" at police officers.
De Los Rios was later located and arrested. In his backpack were two baseball-size rocks, the release says. An Aug. 6 news release from the Portland Police Bureau says De Los Rios was among eight people arrested in connection to destruction at the precinct the night of Aug. 5.
He made his first court appearance on Oct. 21, in which he pleaded not guilty. A trial is scheduled for Dec. 22.
According to the Star Tribune, De Los Rios has photos on his Facebook page showing him participating in the Minneapolis protests in June and July.
