Portland Police Bureau Bulletin:
On Sunday April 2, 2017, Portland Police Bureau North Precinct officers arrested a 45-year-old man wanted in connection with an incident that occurred during a protest in Downtown Portland last week.
Philip Stan Schaefer was arrested this morning at a Northeast Portland Starbucks, when an officer recognized him from a Detective Division wanted bulletin. Schaefer approached officers and was filming them as they had coffee when the officer recognized him as the suspect and took him into custody.
Schaefer was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Robbery in the Second Degree and Coercion. He will be arraigned on Monday.
Schaefer’s charges come as a result of an encounter he had with a man outside the Portland Building, much of which is caught on camera by local media and others recording the encounter.
Six other people were arrested in connection with the protest that occurred on Wednesday March 29:
* 35-year-old Lucy Elizabeth Smith was arrested for Assault in the Fourth Degree and Strangulation, in connection with an assault that occurred outside the front doors to the Portland Building (same incident involving Philip Schaefer).
* 46-year-old Tara Parrish was arrested for Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
* 34-year-old Hollis Laray Patrick McClure was arrested at Southwest 5th Avenue and Madison Street for Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
* 20-year-old Adebisi Ashley Okuneye was arrested at Southeast 5th Avenue and Madison Street for Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
* 22-year-old Damion Zachary Feller was arrested at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Madison Street for Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree and Reckless Burning. Feller was observed burning a flare outside the Portland Building earlier in the afternoon.
* A 14-year-old male was arrested for Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.
The Portland Building was placed into lockout at the request of the Police Bureau on Wednesday due to safety concerns for City employees working in the building. Officers took reports of two assaults and property damage at the Portland Building during the early afternoon protest. Both of those incidents remain under investigation.
The investigation into the assaults at the Portland Building are continuing and additional arrests are possible as investigators work to identify all participants.
