Federal law enforcement officers have utilized unmarked vehicles to detain protesters in Portland, according to news reports.
Videos shared online show officers driving up to people, detaining them without explanation, then driving off, Oregon Public Broadcasting first reported.
Federal customs officials said Friday that their agents had detained a demonstrator in Portland, Ore., who had described being “terrified” by an encounter with unidentified men in military fatigues, offering a defense amid intense criticism of accounts of federal officials circulating in the city in unmarked cars.
Pettibone told The Washington Post in an interview he did not know who detained him. In a statement on Friday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said its agents had taken the action and that they “had information indicating the person in the video was suspected of assaults against federal agents or destruction of federal property.” More
