(Portland, OR) -- A well-known activist from Indianapolis is facing federal charges in connection to alleged crimes during demonstrations in Portland last year. Court documents accuse 24-year-old Malik Fard Muhammad of traveling to Portland with his girlfriend specifically to take part in violent demonstrations. Prosecutors claim evidence shows him buying baseball bats that he gave to other demonstrators and purchasing materials to make Molotov cocktails. Police say he was caught throwing an explosive device during a demonstration. Muhammad is charged with possession of destructive devices, obstructing law enforcement, and using explosives to commit a federal felony.
