A Gresham police spokesman said the officer was on the westbound MAX platform when he saw a fight on the eastbound platform just before 1:30 p.m. As he was heading over to investigate, the fight broke up. The officer then tried to detain 19-year-old Mario Sebastian for questioning, police said.
When the officer tried to take Sebastian into custody, three teens, ages 15, 14, and 17, assaulted the officer, police said.
The officer wasn’t seriously hurt and did not require any medical attention.
Police then arrested the three teens on charges of assaulting a public safety officer, riot, resisting arrest and interfering with police. Sebastian was arrested on charges of escape and resisting arrest.
