Multiple arrests at Portland, Oregon protest

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Latest on nationwide and international protests against President-elect Donald Trump.

Police in Portland, Oregon, made multiple arrests as rowdy anti-Donald Trump protesters marched through downtown for the fourth day.

The demonstrations Saturday night happened despite calls for calm from the city’s mayor and police chief.

Several hundred people took to the streets Saturday night and police arrested multiple people after protesters threw bottles and blocked streets and light rail lines. The exact number of arrests wasn’t immediately available.

The gathering came after a news conference Saturday in which Mayor Charlie Hayes and Police Chief Mike Marshman urged people to restrain themselves after several days of violent marches that damaged property and left one person shot.
