Santa Rosa police officers arrested eight people Wednesday night for violating the city’s curfew following a protest of police brutality, police said Thursday.

Three small groups of protesters gathered around 8 p.m. at Old Courthouse Square and the corners of Mendocino and College avenues and College Avenue and E Street. Most protesters dispersed before the city’s 8 p.m. curfew, save for the eight who were arrested.

Officers made four arrests at Old Courthouse Square and two each from the other locations between 9:06 p.m. and 9:35 p.m., according to the police department.

The Santa Rosa Police Department said in a statement:

“It is our hope that any future protests will be peaceful, allowing all citizens the opportunity to have their voices heard, in a safe space.”

People who witnessed illegal activity Wednesday night are encouraged to contact Santa Rosa police at (707) 528-5222.
