NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- NYPD arrested over 700 protesters that took to the streets of New York City for a fifth day in a row on Monday, calling for justice for George Floyd.

Despite the city's first curfew taking effect, havoc was caused in several neighborhoods across New York City.

The doors of Macy's flagship Manhattan store were breached, and police pulled two handcuffed men out and put them in a van.

7:30 p.m. Protesters gather for a silent vigil in McCarren Park.
