Even winter has become a weapon between for BLM protesters in Portland.

A group of protesters took a break from smashing windows to pelt police officers with snowballs in a decidedly one-sided snowball fight, authorities said.

About 30 to 50 people gathered in downtown Portland around 8 p.m. Friday and marched to Central Precinct, where they began yelling and throwing objects at the officers, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

As officers approached their patrol cars, the protesters hit them with a barrage of snowballs.

The cops “remained out of sight as much as possible” in efforts to “avoid confrontation and de-escalate the situation,” the bureau said.

At about 10:45p.m., the crowd went on a short march, and cops discovered they had broken the windows of a coffee shop and a medical clinic.

No arrests have been made and no injuries were reported.

On Wednesday night, rowdy protesters also wreaked havoc at a police union building by vandalizing and trying to break down the building’s door.

A total of 15 cops responded to break up the crowds.
