According to police, four people have been arrested for blocking streets and refusing to move at a Baltimore protest.

The following suspects were arrested last night during the protest: 
26-year old Cody Kradz, of the 1400 block of Pleasant Valley Drive, Catonsville Maryland. 
32-year old Megan Flynn of the 7900 block of Garland Street, Tacoma Park Maryland. 
31-year old Perry Wheeler of the 10000 block of Delfield Court, Laurel Maryland. 
25-year old Sarah Benjamin of the 4300 block of Berger Street, Baltimore Maryland. 

About 200 people assembled at McKeldin Square Friday night to march to police headquarters. Organized by the Peoples Power Assembly, the protest was organized in wake of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile. 

Police say some people failed to comply with officers and protest coordinators and refused to move out of roadways. Aside from the few protestors arrested, the protesters have been peaceful, according to police.
