SEATTLE — Dozens of people marched through the streets of Seattle's University District on Friday night breaking windows and graffitiing property, according to Seattle police.

Police tweeted photos of vandalism, including graffiti on an Amazon delivery truck and a mural, as well as broken windows at a Starbucks on University Way Northeast.

At one point, the marchers pulled dumpsters into the roadway on Northeast 50th Street, blocking traffic.

The marchers also entered the University of Washington campus, according to police. The George Washington statue was defaced, and Kane Hall was spray painted with derogatory words, according to UW police.

Windows of the Henry Art Gallery were also broken.

UW maintenance crews are cleaning the paint and will board and then replace the windows.  

UW police did not make any arrests.
