Police say 2 officers cut by Occupy SF protesters

Police say Occupy San Francisco protesters attacked two officers during a march.

Police spokesman Carlos Manfredi says officers were trying to keep marchers out of an intersection when a woman came from the crowd, slashed an officer's hand with a pen knife or razor blade, then disappeared before he realized he'd been cut.

Police say a man then came out of the crowd and grabbed an officer's radio, and when the officer chased him another protester shoved the officer, leaving him with a torn uniform and a bleeding laceration on his face.

Police did not know if that protester had a weapon or if the cut came during the struggle.

Police could not find the attackers and no one was arrested.

Both officers were treated at the scene and released.
