Vandals damage businesses during Occupy Oakland march
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland police are trying to identify vandals who took part in a weekend Occupy Oakland march and vandalized various downtown properties.
Officers reported that four broken windows and spray paint damage were found along the route of Saturday night's "FTP" march, most of which were located in the Oakland City Center, according to police.
Marchers wearing black clothing and backpacks were captured on video committing acts of vandalism and retreating into the marching crowd, police said.
The damaged businesses included Starbucks, Wells Fargo, Leon Savoy Bail Bonds, Scott's Trade and Quizno's.
Police said that most recent Occupy marches have been peaceful aside from the vandalism.
Anyone who might have information regarding the crimes is asked to contact Oakland police at (510) 777-3333.
