According to the Portland Police Bureau, several holes were punched in the pane glass windows of a NE 18th and Alberta Street Umpqua bank early this morning. While there has yet to be solidified suspect information, KPTV received an email from a group of self-labeled anarchists this morning, fessing up to the crime.

The message stressed that the leading reason for this act was to be in solidarity with, "...everyone on the receiving end of the daily violence of the Portland Police." The email was signed, "Some angry proles," which I'm guessing stems from proletarians. Although there is no evidence linking these folks to Occupy Portlanders, it seems to be a clear response to the police/occupy clash of the previous day. Police are currently working to unfurl the scenario.
