Man drives car into crowd of protesters in Portland

A man drove his car into a crowd of protesters overnight in downtown Portland, injuring three, before fleeing the scene, police say.

The driver, identified by police as 27-year-old Anthony Eaglehorse-Lassandro, drove away “at a high rate of speed” but was tracked and eventually arrested, Portland police said.

He remains in the Multnomah County Detention Center.

The incident occurred early Wednesday morning as protesters marched in downtown Portland as part of the city’s 20th consecutive day of protests.
