PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Latest on Portland protests (all times local):

3:20 p.m.

Police in Portland, Oregon, say several people were injured and some arrests were made during violent protests Saturday.

Police say four people were taken to hospitals, including one who suffered serious injuries. One officer was also hurt after being struck by a projectile.

Clashes broke out between the right-wing Patriot Prayer, which held an afternoon rally and march downtown, and anti-fascists who countered them.

KGW-TV reports those rallies were not related to peaceful demonstrations held earlier in the day against President Donald Trump's immigration policies.

Police arrested four people but said those arrests stemmed from criminal investigations that began before Saturday's protests.

Deputy Chief Bob Day says police seized weapons such as clubs and knives and protesters hurled rocks, bottles and other projectiles. Police used flash-bang grenades to disperse crowds.
