Rangers from the Portland Parks and Recreation department were threatened by an Antifa protester carrying an axe and a paintball gun in downtown Portland. The man initially assaulted a bicyclist. He was arrested for multiple violent crimes, released, and then arrested again within 48 hours.
Randy Allen Graves, 32, is facing numerous felonies and over 24 charges from his arrest on Saturday. He has been charged with seven counts of menacing, three felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon, fourth-degree assault, seven counts of second-degree disorderly conduct, seven counts of reckless endangering, and three counts of possession of a weapon in a park.
