Police Arrest Five At Occupy Seattle Protest On Capitol Hill Bank

Seattle police arrested five Occupy Seattle protesters during a protest at a Capitol Hill bank Wednesday afternoon.

Shortly after 3:00 pm, a group of protesters converged on the Chase Bank on Broadway Ave and E. Thomas Street. Five protesters apparently entered the bank and chained themselves together.

The event was part of several planned Chase-related protests today by Occupy Seattle. The group is also expected to march through downtown Seattle and hold another protest in front of the Sheraton hotel, where Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is speaking this evening.

SPD said the five protesters will be booked into the King County Jail.
