DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Durham police Sunday said more than 20 people were arrested during vandalism at the former Durham police headquarters on Saturday evening.

Protesters in Durham Saturday broke windows in the former Durham police headquarters and hung banners outside the building from the roof.

The incident was reported before 7:30 p.m. at the old headquarters building at 505 W. Chapel Hill Street.

The protesters broke in through the roof of the building, which is still owned by the city of Durham, where they then hung banners.
