Two men charged following disturbance outside Cider Riot in Northeast Portland

Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill announced that a grand jury charged Ian Kramer, 45, with one count of assault in the second degree, one count of attempted assault in the second degree, one count of unlawful use of mace in the second degree, one count of disorderly conduct in the second degree and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon – and that Matthew Cooper, 24, was charged with one count of disorderly conduct in the second degree and one count of harassment for an incident that resulted in a 31-year-old woman being physically injured on May 1, 2019 outside Cider Riot, located in the 800 block of Northeast Couch Street in Portland, Oregon.

The indictment alleges that Kramer unlawfully, intentionally and knowingly used a dangerous weapon – an asp baton – to cause physical injury to a woman; that he unlawfully and intentionally attempted to cause physical injury to another person using the baton; that he unlawfully and recklessly discharged mace against another person and that he unlawfully and recklessly created a risk of public inconvenience, annoyance and alarm by engaging in fighting and violent, tumultuous and threatening behavior. 

Furthermore, the indictment alleges Cooper unlawfully and recklessly created a risk of public inconvenience, annoyance and alarm by engaging in fighting and violent, tumultuous and threatening behavior and that he unlawfully and intentionally harassed and annoyed the same woman allegedly assaulted by Kramer by subjecting her to offensive physical contact. 

This investigation started on May 1, 2019 when the Portland Police Bureau responded to the 800 block of Northeast Couch Street on reports of a large disturbance. During the investigation, law enforcement learned the identity of an adult female who had been injured during the disturbance. 

On August 7, 2019, at approximately 11 a.m. members of the Portland Police Bureau’s Detective Division and the U.S. Marshals Service Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force located Kramer near North Lombard Street and North Dwight Avenue in Portland and took him into custody. 

Kramer is scheduled to be arraigned on August 8, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. in Courtroom #3 of the Multnomah County Justice Center.

Law enforcement, working with the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, continue to investigate this incident.

As such, no additional information about this case can be released. 

An indictment is only an accusation of a crime. Both Kramer and Cooper are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
