Occupy Protests Clashing with Police, Report of Another Sexual Assault

In Portland, the "Occupy Portland" protesters clashed with police as they defied evictions orders. As many as 3000 protesters and their supporters flooded two city parks starting at midnight as police began to enforce the eviction order and ordered the protesters to disperse.

However, after two hours, the protesters still remained there and continued to stream in to the area. The protests spilled out into the streets and tied up traffic.

In Philadelphia, a woman protester, according to police, at the "Occupy Philadelphia" demonstration was raped in a tent, allegedly by a man who had traveled from out of state to join the protest. The alleged rapist is also wanted for a string of robberies in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

In San Francisco, two police officers were injured Saturday afternoon during a march by protesters. One officer was slashed by an unknown female attacker armed with a razor blade. She ran back into the crowd before the officer even knew he had been cut.

A second officer was injured after he had his radio stolen from him. While trying to retrieve it from the unknown individual, another person, a male, blocked the officer and tore his uniform and cut his cheek with an unknown weapon. Both men ran back into the crowd.
