At least three May Day protesters have been arrested near City Hall in Portland, Oregon, where police canceled a permitted protest over "unsafe conditions," including fires being set and projectiles being thrown.

As marchers passed by the Federal Building in Portland, windows were smashed and broken by "anarchists," KOIN reported.

Multiple fires were also reported.

The permitted protest began at 3:00pm local time, but police revoked the permit by 4:15pm, according to KOIN.
