PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Vandals damaged banks in two Portland neighborhoods overnight.
Police say they shattered windows and doors and damaged ATM machines at a branch in the Sunnyside neighborhood and also at two banks and a Starbucks in the Hollywood business district.
Police say they’re checking bank security video to identify suspects.
KGW reports (http://is.gd/rnIqea ) an email sent to the media claimed responsibility by a group of anti-capitalists.
The email said the vandalism was in preparation for a march planned downtown Wednesday by the Occupy Portland group. That group said on its website it would peacefully try to disrupt businesses with nonviolent civil disobedience.
