PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia police say two demonstrators have been arrested during Occupy Philadelphia protests as part of worldwide May Day demonstrations.

More than 100 protesters marched and rallied outside a downtown bank Tuesday and then marched through the center of the city.

Traffic was gridlocked as protesters gathered at a Wells Fargo & Co. bank branch, then marched several blocks away and sat in the middle of a busy street.

A police spokeswoman said one person was arrested for an alleged assault on a police officer and another on a disorderly conduct charge.
