Occupy Santa Cruz Activists Attack Photographer; Knife Brandished

Occupy activists once again confronted a photographer attempting to photograph them.

This time, it led to two arrests.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that a 43-year-old photographer was accosted by six Occupy Santa Cruz activists on Saturday while he was taking pictures of the encampment.

One man even pulled a knife on him.

Officers were dispatched to the camp about 1:40 p.m. to a reported knife brandishing, and were told by the 43-year-old victim that he was approached by six people who demanded that he stop taking photographs of the camp, Friend said. When he refused, they threw water and toilet paper at him, pushed him and kicked him before one man pulled out a knife, he said.

The man with the knife fled by the time police arrived, but they arrested Kevin Jones, 40, and Edwin Frey, a 71-year-old attorney.
