PORTLAND, Ore. —

Police say vandals who damaged a Wells Fargo branch in northeast Portland claimed it was in response to the federal investigation of May Day violence in Seattle.

Officers learned of the vandalism Thursday morning from local media who received emails describing the damage. A rock was thrown through a glass door and the bank's ATM also was damaged.

The email, received by KGW, KATU and KPTV, said the damage was done in solidarity with three people detained for refusing to cooperate with a grand jury investigation of Portland anarchists suspected of breaking windows and starting fires during the march last May in Seattle.

The message said the bank was targeted because of a "prison industrial complex that such banks perpetuate."
