Three people were arrested during a pro-Palestinian protest outside a Washington, D.C., train station on Friday night.
Many of the protesters flew Palestinian flags and called for a ceasefire as Israel attacks Hamas following terror attacks on October 7 that left over 1,400 Israelis dead and thousands injured.
“During the protest, our officers observed several individuals defacing property with paint. Three individuals were arrested and charged with Defacing Public Property. The property damage was limited to one section of Union Station, and clean-up crews are working to restore the building. There were no major incidents reported,” D.C. Police Chief Pamela A. Smith said in a statement.
The arrests were made after demonstrators made handprints on the side of Union Station, the Washington Examiner reported. Police blocked the entrance
