At least one juvenile was arrested on suspicion of battery on a police officer, and four other people were arrested on suspicion of vandalism, according to LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman.

The names of those arrested and details of the charges were not immediately available. Eisenman did not know the exact time the protesters were arrested.

The number of arrests was far fewer than the previous few days of demonstrations in downtown, when LAPD officers arrested about 150 in the early hours of Saturday and about 185 the day before.
