About 100 Pro-Palestine protesters ARRESTED as they fall down the stairs fleeing NYPD riot cops

‘Panicked and confused’ pro-Palestine protesters fall down the stairs as they tried to flee when cops flooded the Ivy League campus on Tuesday night.

What Happened?

Almost 100 people were arrested at the New York City university, according to NBC.

Police confirmed there were no injuries and no one actually resist arrest.

Some Are Detained

Around 40 of those detained were picked up in on the first floor of Hamilton Hall, which students violently took over early Tuesday.

Cops swooped in on the building through a window after using flash bangs to clear the way.

Why They Were Arrested

It was President Minouche Shafik who called in the police ‘to restore order and safety’ to the campus amid the escalating protests and fears the demonstrations had been co-opted by external agitators.

University administrators have since asked the NYPD to maintain a presence on campus until at least May 17, two days after graduation.

Dozens of cops poured into Hamilton Hall via a window using a ramp attached to a huge armored truck. Video showed the police hammering at locked doors before sweeping in with riot shields. 

Footage showed protesters being dragged out of the campus, some carried by several officers if they refused to walk, and loaded on to buses. 

Just after 10pm, the campus was cleared out and locked down by police with many protesters heading north to City College of New York, where police were also raiding a similar encampment.
