Update 6:50 p.m. San Francisco police arrested 75 protestors this afternoon for misdemeanor trespassing after a request from the San Francisco Archdiocese, said SFPD spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak. Last night protestors took over a church-owned building at 888 Turk St. intending to turn it into a center for the homeless, Occupiers said.
Police became concerned after protestors barricaded gates to the building shut, began stockpiling provisions and stacked buckets of paint, bricks and chairs on the roof to possibly use as weapons against the police, Andraychak said.
The majority of protestors were arrested on the second floor of the building after locking themselves into rooms. One protestor jumped out of a second floor window, but was uninjured.
Update 3:37 p.m. Occupy supporters report that San Francisco police have arrested 50 protestors.
Update 1:51 p.m. Occupy SF supporters report that police are moving in 888 Turk.
