Police arrested 16 individuals after various acts of property destruction, assault, and vandalism occurred during a Saturday Night protest.

A group of protestors left Cal Anderson Park shortly after 9 PM Saturday heading North. A few members of the group were seen committing acts of vandalism and property damage along the way.

The group slowly made their way to the 1600 block of East Olive Way where they shattered windows and threw explosives into a coffee shop.

Commanders declared the protest an unlawful assembly, issued a dispersal order, and officers began moving the crowd out of the area.

As the group moved Eastbound along East Olive Way an explosive was thrown at officers.

In total 16 arrests were made for property destruction, assault, failure to disperse, and rendering criminal assistance.
