PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) - Police arrested 71 people Saturday night in what was the fifth night of protesting in downtown Portland since Republican Donald Trump won the presidential election.

Those arrested face various charges from disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing and interfering with a police officer. All those arrested will be given an additional citation for failing to obey a police officer.

According to Portland Police, people were throwing things like road flares and bottles at police officers. Someone also spray painted some anti-Trump graffiti on a police vehicle early Sunday morning.

Officers used a TriMet bus to transport those arrested to jail.

The protests started Tuesday night as a response to Trump becoming president-elect. Hundreds of peaceful demonstrators walked onto Interstate 5 and blocked traffic overnight and the following night.

By Thursday, there were upwards of 4,000 people involved in the protest, which turned violent as the demonstrators approached the Broadway Bridge. Police arrested 26 people that night.

The following night, police officers in riot gear deployed tear gas and multiple flash bangs at protesters after a once-peaceful protest got rowdy.

Officers say one person was shot during the protest, which eventually made its way to the Morrison Bridge early Saturday morning.

Gregory McKelvey, a spokesperson for Portland’s Resistance that led the first three nights' protests, said the group does not condone the violence and vandalism that is breaking out on downtown streets.

"If you are upset about Donald Trump, I completely understand. That's why we tried to build a movement about love and understanding," said McKelvey. "I'm incredibly saddened that the story has become one of riots and violence and destruction."

The group started a GoFundMe account to help small businesses repair the damage and vandalism sustained during the protests.
