CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has extended the city's
curfew, imposed Saturday night after riots broke out downtown, through
Tuesday night.

The curfew, which was slated to expire at 8 a.m. Monday, now runs through 8
p.m. Tuesday, according to a press release from the Jackson administration.

The area affected by the curfew has also been extended to include the
central business district of downtown Cleveland, as well as the Market
District of Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood.

No one is allowed on the streets of these areas, whether walking or driving.
Officials provided for limited exceptions for cleanup and those who live and
work downtown. However, they encouraged those who live and work in the area
to also stay home.

The curfew was originally put into place at 8 p.m. Saturday to contain the
chaos that broke out following an otherwise peaceful rally demanding justice
in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The curfew

city crews, as well as volunteers and business employees, could clean up the
destruction caused by vandals and looters.

The press release Sunday night also presented more details regarding the law
enforcement efforts during and after the Saturday rally. Sixty-five adults
and one juvenile were arrested. They are jailed and facing charges including
aggravated rioting, vandalism, disorderly conduct and curfew violations, the
city said.

The Cleveland fire department responded Saturday to two building fires; 10
vehicle fires, including four police cars and 11 other fires, such as
dumpsters and ticket booths set ablaze, the news release says. Additionally,
city paramedics took 20 people to area hospitals for various injuries, and
while several first responders were injured, none reported serious injuries,
the city said.

The city said pepper spray and tear gas were deployed on the protesters
outside the Justice Center only after "multiple orders given by law
enforcement to disperse were ignored." But cleveland.com reporters at the
rally did not hear any dispersal orders, nor were they tweeted.

Jackson and Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams plan to hold a media
briefing at 9:30 p.m. Sunday to further address the ongoing situation in the
city. You can watch the briefing on the city's
Facebook page.
