The New York City Police Department arrested at least seven protesters in the first three days of a demonstration on Wall Street targeting financial firms.
Two protesters wearing masks were arrested for trying to enter a building used by Bank of America Corp. (BAC) and one was taken into custody for jumping a police barrier, said Paul Browne, a police spokesman, in an e-mailed statement. Four people were arrested today for wearing masks in violation of a law that bars two or more participants from doing so, he said.
