Marquise Love is known as the Black Lives Matter protester who is accused of allegedly knocking out a driver in Portland during a chaotic demonstration over the weekend. More details about the 25-year-old emerged Wednesday as police continue to seek him in the alleged Sunday night attack on driver Adam Haner.
Love, who is originally from Miami, Florida, worked as a security guard for Star Protection Agency between January and March, the company’s COO Bryan Kettler told Fox News.

He worked for Menzies Aviation at the airport until July 2016, a Port of Portland spokeswoman told.
