DM

Police have arrested three people following a violent clash between right-wing protesters and Antifa members outside of the Oregon state capitol in Salem. Salem police announced the arrests on Sunday following the violent clash. The police press release said that the opposing groups met near the Oregon capitol building after “heavily armed” counter-protesters touting Antifa symbols attempted to disrupt a “Freedom Rally” of right-wing protesters driving by the capitol. Authorities arrested 34-year-old Andrew Alan Foy, 33-year-old Nathan McFarland, and 18-year-old Anthony Villaneda in connection with the violence. Police charged them with violations including trespass, disorderly conduct, and unlawful pointing of a laser. The police described the events leading up to the clash as well as rioters armed with “firearms, bats, skateboards, umbrellas, shields and gas masks” that threatened protesters and damaged vehicles with rocks, paint-filled balloons, and other objects.
