LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Five people were arrested after police were called to an Occupy Louisville-sponsored protest Saturday.

Occupy Louisville called it a day of action at the Chase Bank, and members of the Women in Transition joined the demonstration in the Highlands, asking the bank to issue a moratorium on foreclosures.

Protesters said Chase was bailed out by the people, so the bank should return the favor.

"We are going to occupy Chase. They are one of the major banks that have foreclosed on people of Louisville. (We're) trying to make a statement," said protester Charlotte Craxton.

Metro police were at the scene throughout the demonstration.

According to Occupy Louisville, the five protesters arrested are facing charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, menacing and assaulting police officers.
