Seattle, Wa: Bank Attacked In Revenge For Occupy Oakland

Posted on 11/25/2011


Seeking revenge for Occupy Oakland, someone shattered nearly all the windows and defaced a North Seattle Bank early this morning, according to the Seattle Police Department.

Police say someone used a tool to break windows and an ATM screen at the bank, located in the 1000 block of northeast 63rd Street around 2:50 a.m. “Revenge for Occupy Oakland,” was also spray painted on the bank’s southwest exterior wall.

Damages to the bank are estimated to be tens of thousands of dollars.

On Thursday, Occupy Oakland protesters and police became confrontational when a driver was unable to deliver portable toilets to their camp because he did not have the proper permit, according to the Contra Costa Times. Police also cleared campers from a vacant lot Wednesday, after they had taken it over a day earlier, according to the Mercury News.

It is unclear what the person was seeking revenge for.
