Portland Police have now confirmed the name of the suspect in the vicious assault involving BLM members beating a man, with one of them kicking him in the head, leaving him looking like he might be dead on the ground. We reported on the case on Monday.

Warning for offensive language and graphic images.

The assault infuriated the Internet and the man behind the kick was quickly identified by folks from 4Chan.

Now the police have confirmed the identity of the suspect as 25-year-old Marquise Love.

Police tried to contact him but were unable to find him. They’ve asked him to turn himself in but are still hunting for him at last check.

Apparently they’re not the only ones looking for him, according to the police.

Investigators have left messages for Love to turn himself in but will continue to look for him as there is probable cause for his arrest.

PPB Investigators have been made aware of attempts by members of the public to contact Love after possible personal information was posted online. Investigators urge the public to not do this as it can be dangerous. Also, the information circulating on social media is not always accurate.


Sounds like Love would be better off turning himself in.

Meanwhile, police cleared up the reports about the victim who is alleged to be Adam Hamer. Reports had been floating that he had died, but police said that was false, that in fact, he was recovering and had even been released from the hospital, which is great news.

The police are also looking for the transgender woman that the victim was trying to protect from the BLM before they turned their attention to him. He came to her defense when BLM people attacked her and stole things from her. They think she could help provide more information in the case.

“The Portland Police Bureau is taking this assault and other incidents of violence extremely seriously,” said Chief Lovell. “Our Detectives continue to investigate this assault as well as other acts of violence directed toward protestors, but we need more than just videos from social media. In order to hold individuals responsible for criminal acts, we need the public to provide information and refrain from tampering with evidence.”

It’s not clear what they’re referencing with “tampering with evidence.” But BLM folks spread the lie that the victim was trying to run them over when video revealed that that was not true. They also appeared to take things from the victim’s truck.


The security company Love worked for clarified that he hasn’t worked for them since March and that they decry what he allegedly did.

“We decry violence in all forms, and our hearts go out to anyone that has been injured. We hope for their speedy recovery and will fully cooperate with any law enforcement investigation to ensure justice is done,” COO Bryan Kettler said. “Any use of Star Protection imaging or logos in connection with this individual is unfortunate and unauthorized.”

Thinking this guy isn’t going to be out there long with the whole internet and 4 Chan out looking for him.
