As reproted earlier, violence erupted in some streets of Washington, D.C as members of a group dressed head to toe in black smashed the windows of cars and store windows shortly before President Donald Trump took the oath of office. Over 90 people were arrested, Interim Police Chief Peter Newsham said in a Periscope video posted on Twitter.

Quoted by ABC, He added that the problems were caused by one group, “and it’s a very, very small percentage of the number of folks that came here to peacefully assemble in our city.”

Police said in a statement an organized group marched through the northwest part of the city at around 10:30 a.m., and that “members of the group acting in a concerted effort engaged in acts of vandalism and several instances of destruction of property.”

The police statement said the group damaged vehicles, destroyed the property of multiple businesses, and ignited smaller isolated fires” and that police vehicles were among those damaged.

So far at least three police officers have been injured, and approximately 100 protesters arrested.

Meanwhile, as ABC also reports, the anti-Trump protest has shifted to Manhattan, where it notes that protesters have blocked traffic outside the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue.
