A Portland officer hit a demonstrator with his motorcycle on Saturday, a police press release said.

The policeman attempted to leave a traffic stop after a group of demonstrators surrounded him, according to a press release. When the demonstrators attempted to block the officer’s vehicle, he accelerated and knocked a woman to the ground.

Law enforcement ultimately arrested the woman, who has yet to be named, for allegedly jumping in front of the officer’s bike, the release said. She was being treated in a medical facility and was not booked at the time of the announcement.

The Portland Police Bureau said rioters slashed the tires of the police vehicles present at the hospital that night.

A total of around 100 demonstrators — some of whom donned body armor, helmets, gas masks and shields — chanted about burning down the Penumbra Kelly building, a police facility, in a separate incident throughout the weekend night, according to the release.

Police made multiple arrests Saturday with charges including attempted assault on a peace officer, interfering with a police officer, disorderly conduct and harassment, according to the release.
