Police: Protesters harassed at Zuccotti

The NYPD is looking for three men who they say allegedly intimidated a woman while she was participating in the Occupy Wall Street protest in Zuccotti Park.

A man was arrested after the woman told police he assaulted her and her friends on Oct. 11 inside the park. Cops say the man’s friends then “threatened to kill” the woman on Monday for having filed the complaint.

Meanwhile, a group called Parents for Occupy Wall Street announced yesterday they will begin patrolling the park wearing bright lime green T-shirts. The group will walk through Zuccotti Park four times a day to address noise and sanitation complaints.

And the Manhattan district attorney’s office might dismiss charges against about half of the 700 people arrested Oct. 1 on the Brooklyn Bridge. The deal would require protesters not to be

rearrested within six months.
