Antifa folks being annoying as Police trying to save suicidal Man’s life In Portland
Portland, Oregon – Groups of ANTIFA agitators surrounded police officers who were responding to a man with a knife in a mental health crisis in downtown Portland, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
Officers were called out to the 300 block of Southwest 4th Avenue at 1 p.m. Friday.
Witnesses said a man jumped out of a building’s second-story window, pulled out a knife and began waving it around at people and passing cars.
The 30-year-old man displayed the knife to officers who arrived at the scene.
Police said they learned the man is schizophrenic and extremely paranoid, and could be a threat to himself or others.
Officers said they did not rush in, but slowed down, kept their distance and “exercised patience and de-escalation.”
Negotiations lasted for 90 minutes, before two separate crowds of protesters began showing up to the north and the south of the scene, according to police.
Officers said some in the crowd began chanting, and at least one person had a bullhorn.
