Protesters on bicycles tried to block traffic. A Ford Taurus approached the protesters and stopped at first, but soon began to move sharply through the crowd. The car hit three cyclists standing on the roadway. As a result, they received minor injuries and medical volunteers provided assistance on the spot.

According to a spokesman for the New York police, a supporter of Donald Trump drove the car - a small rally was held near the square in support of the incumbent president. Law enforcement has launched an investigation into the incident.

Protests have been taking place in Portland and several other cities in the United States for several months, starting after the death of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis. Demonstrations are often accompanied by riots.
