Today, Central Precinct officers responded to the 5500 Block of NW Front Avenue to help property managers remove unwanted demonstrators. This was the same location as a demonstration held on April 22, 2019.

When officers arrived, the property owner spoke to the demonstrators and demanded they leave the private property. The trespassers refused to leave. Officers then provided another admonishment for the trespassers to leave. The trespassers again refused to leave the private property. The trespassers, fourteen in total, were each individually given a third warning. When they refused to leave, they were handcuffed and escorted off the property. No force was used during the arrests. The trespassers, who were all arrested on one count of Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree, were:

Jan Zuckerman, 60
Richard Peppers, 63
Michael Horner, 69
