On Friday November 18, 2016, at 12:28 a.m., Central Precinct officers and Portland Firefighters responded to Southeast 9th Avenue and Ash Street on the report that a vehicle was on fire and someone was observed running from the scene.

Officers and firefighters arrived to find a silver Ford Mustang on fire. After the fire was extinguished, officers noticed that there was spray paint on the on the passenger side of the vehicle stating “FK Trump”. Officers also noticed a small sticker on the Mustang that was pro-Trump.

On a tan Volvo parked in front of the burned Mustang the same graffiti had been applied by an unknown person.

A witness told police that he heard what he thought might have been an explosion and saw a person jumping in place several times next to the Mustang, then run away southbound on 9th Avenue. The witness could only describe the person as a thin build, average height, dark clothing.
