August 17, 2020

Some of the damage at the Minneapolis Police Department's 5th Precinct headquarters on Saturday night.

Protesters damaged the Minneapolis Police Department's Fifth Precinct building in south Minneapolis on Saturday night, breaking a window with rocks and leaving graffiti.

Chief Medaria Arradondo said in a statement Sunday that he will not tolerate people "hijacking peaceful protests" and engaging in destructive behavior that included targeting officers with commercial-grade fireworks."

"Acts such as these do absolutely nothing to constructively engage and activate true and real needed reforms," he said. "The vast majority of the men and women of the MPD who continue to come to work each day and night are doing so to keep our communities safe and make a positive difference. I support them and their efforts working professionally during this pandemic, amidst an increase in violent crime and as we diligently press forward in creating a new MPD in partnership with our communities."
