Police say 2 officers attacked, cut by Occupy San Francisco protesters during march By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Police say Occupy San Francisco protesters attacked two officers in separate incidents during a march.

Police spokesman Carlos Manfredi tells the Los Angeles Times officers were trying to keep marchers out of the middle of an intersection where trains were running when a woman came out of the crowd, slashed an officer's hand with a pen knife or razor blade, then disappeared back into the crowd before he realized he'd been cut.

Later at the same location, police say a man came out of the crowd and grabbed an officer's radio, and when the officer chased him another protester pushed the officer, cut his face and tore his uniform.

Police could not find the attackers and no one has been arrested.

Both officers were treated at the scene and released.
