PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police say officers have arrested a man suspected of putting burning road flares inside a downtown Portland Target store and in a Portland Police car during the May Day riot Monday.

The Portland Police Bureau said in a news release that 22-year-old Damion Feller was arrested Wednesday at a city intersection. He was jailed on charges including arson and riot.

He’ll be arraigned on Thursday.

Police say Feller was identified after investigators reviewed video of the Monday events as well as through community tips.

He is among a more than two dozen people arrested in connection with the protest, which police deemed a riot and shut down after protesters set fires in the street, vandalized a police car, smashed windows and spray-painted businesses.
