Man Scales Wall to Damage Security Camera Amid Portland Protests

Multnomah County Sheriff was appealing on July 7 for help identifying a man who climbed a wall at the Justice Center in Portland on June 29 before repeatedly hitting and damaging a security camera.

“Criminal activity does not solve the issues facing our community,” the sheriff’s department wrote.

Officials shared CCTV footage of the accident, which came amid widespread protests across the US and abroad in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
