NC Police: Arrested Protestors Range From 20 To 66

Anti-Wall Street protestors say they're not going away after 20 people were arrested following a demonstration at the State Capitol.

Raleigh police on Sunday identified the people arrested after refusing to leave the Capitol grounds hours after their demonstration was scheduled to end. They were charged with second-degree trespassing.

The arrested protestors range from age 20 to 66. Most are from Raleigh, with others from Pembroke and Martinsville, Va.

Police say the Occupy Raleigh protest on Saturday drew about 400.

Greensboro Police Chief Ken Miller estimated the size of a similar protest in that city at about 600 on Saturday. More than 80 protesters in Wilmington protested outside the downtown building of Bank of America on Saturday.
