Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says she is concerned about reports of illegal activity at the Occupy Baltimore encampment in a downtown park.
Police are investigating a reported assault and theft at the site. A woman told police she stayed in a man’s tent Friday night and awoke to find her money gone. Police say there’s no evidence of sexual assault.
Occupy Baltimore says it takes such allegations seriously and has a zero-tolerance policy towards assault.
Rawlings-Blake says she respects protesters’ free speech rights, but the park is not for camping and should be a space everyone can enjoy.
