A 25-year-old man has turned himself in after Portland police launched a manhunt for him in connection to a brutal Sunday night attack on a man which put him in the hospital.
Marquise Lee Love was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on Friday after turning himself in just before 8:30 a.m. according to jail records.
“I am pleased the suspect in this case turned himself in and appreciate all of the efforts to facilitate this safe resolution,” said PPB Chief Chuck Lovell, according to Fox News. “Thank you to all of the members of the public who have provided information and tips to our investigators. Your assistance is very much appreciated.”

Love was caught on video kicking victim Adam Haner in the head. Haner says he was yanked” out of his truck “before I even got my door open,” adding “I was just standing for myself as a citizen.”
This is the moment immediately before. The mob assaults him and makes him sit in the ground while they search his belongings. When he stands up, they brutally beat him. #PortlandRiots #antifa #BlackLivesMatter Video by @livesmattershow pic.twitter.com/tEzpIz6V9U

“If you can’t do that on a street, then what can you do?”
Haner was seen on video revving the engine of his truck and slowly rolling the vehicle forward until he speeds away — all while people from the group can be seen running up to the vehicle, kicking and shouting at it. Just moments before he drove off, someone from the crowd was seen punching and jumping his girlfriend, who was identified in reports as Tammie Martin.
Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Sunday, police responded to a 911 call from someone who reported that protesters “chased a white Ford” 4×4 truck, which then crashed in the downtown area, according to a department press release. A caller told police an estimated nine to 10 people began “beating the guy,” the caller stated. –Fox News
“Investigators learned that the victim may have been trying to help a transgender female who had some of her things stolen in the area … where this incident began,” police said on Monday.”
Haner was transported to a hospital while still unconscious. He is now recovering at home.
