SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police and sheriff's deputies have cleared a building owned by the Catholic archdiocese in San Francisco that was occupied during May Day protests.
About two dozen people were taken into custody on Wednesday morning, as officers in riot gear surrounded the building.
Police spokesman Daryl Fong says there were no reports of any resistance or incidents.
About 200 people took over the building a day earlier, with two men on adjacent rooftops at one point lobbing pipes and bricks at a line of police officers. One person, 34-year-old Jesse Nesbitt, was arrested on suspicion of felony aggravated assault
The building has been targeted in previous protests.
