Portland Police Identify Suspect in Brutal Beating of Man Sunday Evening

A suspected man involved in a brutal beating in Portland that was caught on film has been identified by the Portland Police as 25 year old Marquise Love.

Per the Portland Police Bureau:

Yesterday, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) began investigation of an assault that occurred in the downtown area where an adult male associated to a white pick-up truck was violently assaulted. Investigators positively identified the suspect as 25 year-old Marquise Love. Investigators made attempts to contact Love but could not locate him.

Investigators have left messages for Love to turn himself in but will continue to look for him as there is probable cause for his arrest.

PPB Investigators have been made aware of attempts by members of the public to contact Love after possible personal information was posted online. Investigators urge the public to not do this as it can be dangerous. Also, the information circulating on social media is not always accurate.

Other reports around social media claim that the victim in this case is not recovering or has succumbed to the injuries. These reports are false. The victim has been released from the hospital and is recovering.

Per Breitbart, Love’s Facebook page showed he listed himself as an “armed security guard” at Portland International Airport. In one video of the assault, Love is seen wearing a vest that said “Security” on it. In one Facebook photo, Love was wearing the same or a similar-looking vest.

According to The Post Millenial, Love was previously charged with fourth-degree assault and harassment in a 2017 domestic violence case book at Washington County Community Corrections Center in Hillsboro, Oregon.

These are the events that took place that Love is being sought for.

Per the Portland Police Bureau “Portland Police became aware of video’s circulating through social media, which show various events of what led up to an assault of the victim. The series of events was carried out in different locations involving many different people. This in an ongoing investigation and the Police Bureau will provide further information as it is available.”
