Tulsa -

A Black Lives Matter mural has been removed from the streets of Tulsa once again, this time in a different location.

Tulsa police were called to 2nd and Cincinnati after protestors placed a stencil with the acronym BLM on the street in front of the City Hall building.

Two people were arrested for obstruction.

Lieutenant Chris Witt from the Tulsa Police Department said, "I told them it was an Unlawful Assembly; they prevented me from getting to the people doing the painting."

Crews later sprayed the letters away with water.

The murals were removed as several marches occurred downtown Saturday afternoon.
