25-year-old Marquise Love is on everyone’s radar these days. The Portland Police Bureau is asking everyone to be on the lookout for Love. The PPB also mentions that he’s been “positively identified” as the suspect who delivered a brutal from-behind kick to the head of a man in Portland, seriously injuring him.
Marquise Love, who goes by Keese Love, has been asked to turn himself in by investigators, who say they will continue to look for him as there is probable cause for his arrest.
Who is Marquise Love?
Not much is known about Love at the moment. Love’s Facebook page shows him as a Dj for Portland Oregon clubs. He also says he’s a “ramp agent at Portland International Airport”, according to heavy.com
Fox News reports that the man identified as the driver could be seen getting punched, kicked and ordered not to leave in the middle of a city street. The man in the video, at one point, appeared dazed after the initial assault, but suffered the worst blow when he absorbed a roundhouse kick to the side of the head.
Although Love probably caused most of the damage to the driver with his cowardly kick, PPB and others filming at the scene show there were others involved.
“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.”
The attack on the driver began around August 16, 2020, at 10:27 p.m. Portland Police officers responded to an accident call at the intersection of Southwest Taylor Street and Broadway.
The call read that “protestors chased a white Ford 4×4, which has crashed” at that location and “protestors drug him out of car.” Another witness called prior to police arrival and reported that 9-10 people were “beating the guy.”
The victim was released from the hospital and is currently recuperating at his home.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Brent Christensen at 503-823-2087 or at Brent.Christensen@portlandoregon.gov.
