A dozen people were arrested on Sunday night during a march through Lower Manhattan to show support for Occupy protesters in Oakland, City Room reported . Approximately 300 protesters occasionally surged into streets, and on at least two occasions someone in the crowd threw glass bottles, apparently aimed at police officers who accompanied the march on foot and in vehicles.

The police plunged into the crowd several times to make arrests. Three men were charged with assault and one with criminal weapons possession, the police said. Most of the rest of those arrested were charged with disorderly conduct. Three of the 12 people arrested were women. One officer sustained an injured finger.
