A rioter charged with breaking windows at St. André Bessette Parish in downtown Portland in November 2020 has now pled guilty to robbing a Beaverton convenience store and will face weapons charges.

Police arrested Jarrod Deferrari in 2020 for the damage done at the church and other downtown buildings. Deferrari, who is from Florida, was charged with rioting and first-degree criminal mischief but was released the following day.

Six months later, in May 2021, a masked Deferrari wielded a pistol and robbed the 7-11 store across the street from Jesuit High School. Video surveillance shows him pointing the gun in the clerk’s face.

Later, Beaverton firefighters encountered Deferrari, who had taken up residence in a vacant house and had apparently started a fire. The firefighters left when they saw Deferrari with a gun.

The suspect was arrested again in late May when he carried a shotgun and pistol onto a city bus heading from Beaverton to Portland. Again released, he was detained a third time after he returned to the empty home. He had spray-painted “antifa” graffiti inside the house.

In the residence, detectives found items linking Deferrari to the 7-11 robbery.

He is now being detained by Multnomah County corrections officials.
