Vandals broke a window and left “Occupy” graffiti overnight on a Wells Fargo branch in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood, according to police.
The damage was reported by a bank manager at 8:48 a.m in the 4000 block of East Madison Street. Police said sometime overnight someone spray-painted the words “No Bank,” “No cops,” “Occupy” and Oakland” on the exterior doors of the bank.
On Saturday in Oakland, Occupy demonstrators broke into City Hall and battled police who made more than 400 arrests.

Working Washington spokesman Sage Wilson says the nonviolent organization has no relationship to Monday’s vandalism.
