Update (1650ET): Portland PD have launched a manhunt for Marquise Love (a.k.a. "Keese Love") as a suspect in Sunday night's violent attack on a truck driver who was put in the hospital after Love allegedly kicked him in the head.
Love was identified by 4chan users early Monday, and appeared to have admitted to the crime over social media the night of the incident.
Shortly before 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, police responded to a 911 call from someone who reported that protesters “chased a white Ford” four-by-four truck, which then crashed in the downtown area, according to a department press release. Protesters then dragged the driver out of the vehicle, one caller stated. Another told police an estimated nine to 10 people began “beating the guy,” the caller stated. -Fox News
"Investigators learned that the victim may have been trying to help a transgender female who had some of her things stolen in the area of Southwest Taylor and 4th Ave, the location where this incident began," police said late Monday.
Just another 'peaceful' protest, right CNN?

A viral clip has been making its way around the internet, featuring a pack of Portland BLM protesters viciously beating a man on the street, ending only after a man - who has yet to be arrested - kicking him in the head from behind.
First, we recommend watching Tucker Carlson's coverage of the incident. It may be one of his most important monologues this year.
And now for the rest of the story, from Summit News' Paul Joseph Watson:
Police investigators have confirmed that the man viciously beaten by Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland on Sunday night was trying to help a transgender female who had been the victim of a robbery.
BLM agitators claimed they attacked the man, subsequently identified as Adam Haner, because he was a “white supremacist” trying to run people over while shouting racial slurs, but there is no evidence of this whatsoever.
Shocking footage shows protesters trying to drag Haner out of his vehicle while assaulting his female companion, before they continue to pursue him, causing Haner to crash his Ford 4×4.
Haner is then assaulted again before a man later identified as Marquise “Keese” Lee Love, a “security guard” for Black Lives Matter, kicks him in the head, immediately knocking him unconscious and leaving him bleeding on the street.
This is the moment immediately before. The mob assaults him and makes him sit in the ground while they search his belongings. When he stands up, they brutally beat him. #PortlandRiots #antifa #BlackLivesMatter Video by @livesmattershow pic.twitter.com/tEzpIz6V9U— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 17, 2020
The Portland Police Bureau issued a statement appearing to confirm reports that Haner was trying to help the victim of a robbery before he was beaten.
“Investigators learned that the victim may have been trying to help a transgender female who had some of her thing stolen in the area of Southwest Taylor and 4th Ave, the location where this incident began,” states a press release.
“That person has not been contacted and their identity is unknown. Investigators would like to speak to this person.”
As with virtually every example of Black Lives Matter protesters physically attacking people, the national media has largely ignored the story.
Haner was taken to hospital and is now at home recovering. A GoFundMe has been set up to support him.
Interesting to see this after hours spent talking to eyewitnesses who described the man as a “Good Samaritan” who was trying to help a transgender woman who was being beaten up by the same crowd who beat him. And there is video of everything. There is only one truth. https://t.co/EiLoXZEwu5— Lara Logan (@laralogan) August 18, 2020
