The NYPD arrested 240 people overnight as protests over the police-involved death of George Floyd continued across the city, authorities said Friday morning.
The arrests came as police enforced the citywide 8 p.m. curfew imposed earlier this week, arresting multiple demonstrators in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn who continued to march in defiance of the deadline.
Police did not immediately have a breakdown of the charges against those arrested Thursday night into early Friday.
A day earlier, 180 arrests were made citywide, Wednesday night into Thursday.
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday declared that “enough is enough” when it comes to protesters demonstrating past the curfew.
“In the context of crisis, in the context of curfew, there comes a point where enough is enough,” de Blasio said during his daily City Hall press briefing.
The 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew remains in effect through Sunday.
