Black Lives Matter (BLM) “security” was recorded attacking a random white man in Portland, Oregon. The assault victim was driving his white pickup truck in the city and came upon a so-called “peaceful protest.” A mob of people immediately descends upon his car and attacks him and a woman that may have been his passenger and or his wife. He was able to escape but crashed his car into a nearby light pole.
The crowd descended upon the random man again after the crash. When he got out of the crashed car, they pushed him to the ground and asked him a bunch of random questions. They essentially detained him. This video picks up when the guy is still on the ground, trying to call his wife, not picking a fight. The “BLM security guard” runs up behind him and kicks him in the head which renders him unconscious.
The identity of the “BLM security guard” has been rumored online but isn’t confirmed quite yet. However, the rumors do appear to be fairly accurate. The rumored man looks identical to the assailant in several online videos. It’s not quite clear if the assault victim is in the hospital or what condition he’s in. Considering the severity of the beating he received on video, the man is probably not in the best shape at this moment.
This is a developing story and updates will happen as more information is discovered.
UPDATE (8.18.20 / 3:34PM EST): The attacker has been positively identified as 25-year-old Marquise “Keese” Love of Portland. Police are currently searching for him. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Brent Christensen at 503-823-2087 or at [email protected].
