One protester was arrested and more than a dozen were cited for trespassing when police raided an Occupy Oakland camp in West Oakland this evening.

Police responded to the encampment, located at a lot in the 2000 block of Peralta Street in West Oakland, at around 5 p.m.

Police were informed this morning by a Peralta Street property owner that protesters were camping on the property without permission, police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.

Officers issued written and verbal notices asking protesters to leave the property, according to Watson.

Three protesters voluntarily left, 14 did not leave and were issued citations for trespassing and one protester, who could not be cited because he or she lacked identification, was arrested, Watson said.
