Portland police arrest man wanted from protest


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Portland police have arrested a man wanted in connection with last week’s protests outside a City Council meeting after officers observed him filming them as they had coffee.

The Portland Police Bureau said Monday that 45-year-old Philip Stan Schaefer was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of second-degree robbery and coercion on Sunday, five days after he was filmed by a local TV station getting into a shoving match with another man during the protest.

Police say Schaefer’s charges come as a result of that encounter.

Schaefer is the seventh person arrested in connection with the March 29 demonstration.

Demonstrators were protesting the death of a 17-year-old teenager who was fatally shot by a Portland police officer in February.

A grand jury last month found the shooting justified.
