Occupy Wall Street: 2 protesters arrested, 1 injured at Zuccotti
Two Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested at Zuccotti Park and one was hurt yesterday as hundreds of marchers descended on the movement's old headquarters.
The two unidentified protesters were taken into police custody and charged with disorderly conduct, according to the NYPD.
The woman treated in the ambulance, identified only as Mary by fellow protesters at Zuccotti Park, either tripped or was knocked down during a scuffle while the first arrest was happening, according to officers at the scene. She was treated at the scene and released, reports sad.
Many of the protesters were part of the six-day, 99-mile Guitarmy march from Philadelphia, which arrived in the city yesterday afternoon.
Aside from the arrests, protesters and police had few confrontations, and officers on the scene told amNewYork that the day was mostly calm and without incident.
