READ MORE:

CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) -- Police say two dozen masked intruders
damaged property and blocked access to elevators at a condominium
in Chapel Hill, leading to three arrests.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reported that police arrested Karoline
Patrice Knable of Durham, Brian Paul Dingledine of Chapel Hill, and
Kyle Daniel Whisenant of Greensboro on charges including felony
rioting and misdemeanor damage.

Greenbridge managing partner Tim Toben said the protesters
overturned furniture and broke windows, causing more than $3,000 in
damages Saturday.

Greenbridge is next to a neighborhood of modest-sized homes.
Banners waved by the intruders included one saying "Total war on
gentrification."

The $56 million mixed-use project has been subject to previous
bomb threats and vandalism.

It was not clear if the three suspects have attorneys.
