NYPD Detective Denise Moroney said charges resulting from the Times Square protest included disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Eighty-five people received summonses and one person received a desk appearance ticket.

Approximately 20 people have been released with a court summons, Moroney said.

Leyva said police had blocked off traffic before the rally began but as soon as protesters tried to get onto the street, officers "descended from all sides" and "started ripping people off of the sidewalk."

In despair, protesters take to streets for Breonna Taylor

  In despair, protesters take to streets for Breonna Taylor LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Some of them raised their fists and called out “Black lives matter!” Others tended to the letters, flowers and signs grouped together in a square in downtown Louisville. All of them said her name: Breonna Taylor. People dismayed that the officers who shot the Black woman in her apartment during a drug raid last March wouldn’t be charged with her death vowed to persist in their fight for justice. The big question for a town torn apart by Taylor’s death and the larger issue of racism in America was how to move forward. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

New York City police arrested a group of protesters on Thursday evening during a demonstration against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement over the allegation that doctors have performed unwanted hysterectomies at the borders. Eight protesters were arrested as a group of 50 to 60

The New York Post reported that the police and protesters , who were demonstrating against Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE ) based on recent reports that the agency performed unneeded hysterectomies on illegal alien women, clashed in Manhattan’s Times Square.

Leyva said police were playing a very loud recording that was warning disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges, along with "a high-pitched siren" to disperse the crowds. She said batons were also used.

Leyva herself was not arrested. After the first altercation with the officers, Leyva made her way to 1 Police Plaza to support those detained and described "pretty brutal arrests."

"At jail support there was a young girl who was actually standing next to me when they attacked us, and they lifted her up by her hair and then slammed her on the sidewalk and dog-piled on top of her. I think she's OK, she was released," Leyva said.

Leyva alleged that police violence at New York protests had been escalating.

"The jail support violence is really concerning because jail support is not a protest," she said. "There were probably 30 of us there sitting on a public sidewalk. So them getting violent and arresting people at jail support is a real attempt to undermine the movement."
