    What else? The district attorney claimed that Muhammed traveled to Portland in the summer of 2020 with the intent to commit violence in the community and added that Muhammed's criminal activity "spanned September and October of 2020 and included four separate criminal incidents." In separate incidents a few weeks later, on Sept. 21 and Sept. 23, Muhammed attended planned protests at the Multnomah County sheriff’s office and Multnomah County Justice Center, during which he threw Molotov cocktails at police officers. During the first protest, Muhammed's Molotov cocktail failed to explode and was recovered as evidence. But during the second protest, the explosive device went off, narrowly missing multiple officers. It did, however, catch the clothing of one of the officers on fire. In the last documented incident, which took place on Oct. 11 at Directors Park in downtown Portland, "Muhammed used a baton to smash the windows of the Oregon Historical Society, Portland State University, and multiple other businesses in the downtown Portland area," Schmidt said. Police also recovered a loaded firearm on Muhammed's person that night. In addition...

    GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) — Gloucester Township police say a man was arrested after a five-and-a-half-hour standoff Sunday, during which he threw knives and Molotov cocktails at officers. Police say 33-year-old Oliver Ndemezeng was arrested after the standoff on the 1600 block of Lawncrest Lane. The incident began when police and a tow truck driver were attempting to move an inoperable vehicle for a parking violation. That’s when police say Ndemezeng threw a glass bottle at the tow truck driver from a second-story window of a townhome. Police say Ndemezeng began screaming at them and throwing more objects, including what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail. He then attempted to light the window sill on fire with a blow torch and threatened to burn the officers if they moved his car. More officers arrived at the scene and evacuated family members from the home and other neighboring homes. Police say Ndemezeng threatened to stab officers if they entered the home, threw knives at them from a window, and barricaded himself inside the residence.
