Police Conduct Early Morning Raid Of Occupy SF Camp

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco police arrested approximately 55 Occupy SF protesters for illegal lodging on the 100 block of Market Street early Sunday morning.

The protesters had set up an encampment in the area following last week’s raid on their camp at Justin Herman Plaza.

San Francisco police said that there were no injuries during the tense confrontation, although one officer was spit on and another was pushed by demonstrators.

Riot police moved in on the camp around 4 a.m.

Police said the group was given hourly advisements of illegal lodging and would be subject to arrest for the last 24 hours.

The group said they plan to regroup and would be back at the site.
