Fourteen protesters in lower Manhattan were arrested after a decision to delay closing Zuccotti Park, the site of demonstrations against the financial industry, police said.

Protesters arrested included those who stood or sat down in the street, Paul Browne, a spokesman for the New York City Police Department, said in an e-mail. Others taken into custody included individuals who allegedly overturned trash baskets or hurled bottles, Browne said. At least one demonstrator was detained after he allegedly knocked over a police scooter.

The arrests took place near Broadway and Exchange Place. They came after a decision yesterday to keep Zuccotti Park, near Liberty Street and Broadway, open rather than close it for cleaning.
