Police arrested six protesters in downtown Portland, Oregon, on Sunday evening after some of them vandalized buildings and blocked traffic, according to the Portland Police Bureau (PPB).

A march began in Tom McCall Waterfront Park on Sunday evening and continued to the Multnomah County Courthouse.

As the group reached their destination, the police warned the protesters via a loudspeaker and on social media not to vandalize the area or block traffic and that they would face arrest if they did so, the PPB said in a statement.

Several people spray-painted the building, and police made at least one arrest in that incident. The suspect was transferred to the custody of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.
