(Salem, OR) -- Police say four people were arrested after demonstrators broke into the Oregon State Capitol building yesterday morning while protesting the special legislative session. The building is closed because of COVID-19 restrictions, with only members of the special session being allowed in. Oregon State Police and Salem Police responded to get the demonstrators out of the building. Police called for backup after demonstrators allegedly sprayed bear spray on them. Four people were arrested and police are trying to locate 40-year-old Jeremy Roberts, who's accused of breaking a window on a door and attacking two reporters.
