Berkeley police on Sunday night released the names of the nine men and four women arrested earlier that day in connection with a rally in the city that turned violent.

The second day of protests that broke out in the Bay Area triggered turmoil Sunday afternoon when demonstrators came together at Civic Center Park to protest the planned “No to Marxism” rally, which was reportedly denied a permit and canceled before the weekend, the San Francisco Examiner previously reported.

The demonstrators, who were banned from bringing items that could be used as weapons to the park, included Black Lives Matter activists and large numbers of black-clad protesters known as anti-Fascists or “Antifa.”

Additionally, one officer was injured while making an arrest, and other officers were struck with paint. Six civilians were injured and treated by paramedics, two of whom were taken to local hospitals for treatment.
