NEW YORK (AP) — Police say more than 70 people have been arrested in New York City during demonstrations against corporate greed, including 45 in Times Square.

Two police officers suffered injuries and had to be hospitalized. One had a head injury.

Police spokesman Paul Browne says 42 people were arrested in Times Square at about 8 p.m. Saturday after being warned three times to disperse. Three others were arrested just after 6 p.m. while trying to take down police barriers.

It wasn't immediately clear what charges they might face.

Earlier in the day, two dozen protesters were arrested at a Citibank branch when they refused a manager's request to leave. Most were detained for trespassing.

Five other people wearing masks were arrested as demonstrators marched through Manhattan to Times Square.
