Nearly a dozen people were arrested after demonstrators protesting supporters of President Donald Trump clashed with police in New York City Sunday.

A crowd of demonstrators gathered near a public park to oppose pro-Trump vehicle caravan that they believed was set to move through the Boroughs, according to the New York Post. A total of 11 people were either arrested by law enforcement or issued a summons for charges including disorderly conduct, obstruction and resisting arrest, the Post reported.

Video showed the crowd, many of whom were clad in black, sparring with uniformed officers, according to footage obtained by the Post. One woman can be heard yelling “fuck you,” as cops repeatedly blared a whistle and stood with batons, the video revealed.

“It’s fucking New York City. There are people getting fucking raped and murdered,” one protester yelled at police, according to the Post. “Go fight real crime, you fucking pathetic pussies.”

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) said reports were circulating about members of the press being arrested during the incident, but the agency claimed this was “false” in a Sunday tweet.

“All arrested individuals from today’s protests have been verified to not be NYPD credentialed members of the press,” the department wrote.

Pro-Trump vehicle caravans reportedly blocked traffic on two major highways in both New York and New Jersey on Sunday, according to the Post.
