WATCH: Downtown Montreal anti-police brutality marchers told to disperse, arrests made
The latest Montreal anti-police brutality march ended as it usually does, with vandalism and confrontations.
It began peacefully enough with speeches at Norman Bethune Square, at the corner of Guy and de Maisonneuve.
But, not long after it the march began, police declared it illegal, saying, among other things, a glass window was shattered.
CTV's Max Harrold covered the march and said a demonstrator at the front of the march was hitting cars with a stick, which "energized the crowd".
Things, he said, eventually "erupted."
"There were firecrackers and the Royal bank at the corner of Peel and Sherbrooke, I saw some major damage there. There was a plate glass window that was shattered", said Harrold.
Harrold also said there was an arguement between protestetrs and a motorist, who got out of the vehicle.
As of 11 PM, two people were reportedly arrested.
CTV reported one person was arrested on charges of mischief and another for uttering threats as protesters and police clashed on the streets.
There were no injuries to officers of civilians, adding that there were multiple cases of vandalism, according to Montreal police spokesperson Sgt. Det. Emmanuel Anglade.
