Chiara de Blasio, 25, was taken into custody around 10.30pm after cops infiltrated an "unlawful assembly" at 12th Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan, police sources say.

During an interview on Monday, de Blasio stated that neither he neither his partner Chirlane McCray understood that their 25- year-old daughter Chiara had the "intention to get arrested", including that he was completely encouraging of what she did when he listened to the information.

Shea said the department is investigating officers' behavior in about six incidents, including one in which two police vehicles plowed through a group of protesters Saturday in Brooklyn.

'That was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops, ' a source told the New York Post.

Saying he stands "behind the protestors and their message", Cuomo said in the statement that "the violence and the looting that has gone on in New York City has been bad for the city, the state and this entire national movement, undermining and distracting from this righteous cause".

All of these instances are under investigation, de Blasio said, calling the videos "troubling".

Shea commented on images of NYPD officers kneeling with and hugging protesters Sunday during a march, tweeting, "We need more of this, to see and hear each other, to work together, to recognize that our differences are our strength".

New York's mayor said Monday he was considering putting the nation's biggest city under curfew after nights of destruction followed three days of largely peaceful protests over George Floyd's death.

Mayor de Blasio did not mention his daughter's arrest during a press briefing on Sunday, but he noted that city police showed "tremendous restraint overall", adding that he does not plan to impose a curfew, unlike other major US cities and smaller cities throughout the state. "They are an awesome cue about what we should be doing at this moment in time". He said the officers in the video were in an "impossible situation", because they were being surrounded.

But the police department has come under criticism for confrontations with demonstrators over the weekend. This moment demands leadership & accountability from each of us. "Make it right. De-escalate".

"Running SUVs in crowds of people should never, ever be normalized", she added. "No matter who does it, no matter why".

"He must hold the NYPD accountable for their actions", she wrote on Twitter.

"There are people who have ulterior motives, and they're trying to hijack the message", the New Yorker said. (Andrew Kelly/Reuters) Police try to contain protesters during a rally at the Barclays Center in the Brooklyn borough of NY on May 29, 2020.

"He should resign because his comments on Saturday night were brazen and disgusting lies", he wrote. "It is clear that neither police auto was surrounded; both drivers could have reversed but chose instead to plough their vehicles into the crowd of people in front of them".

"We worked hard to build up the business, and within a second, someone does this", said the owner of a ransacked Manhattan smoke shop, who identified himself only as Harri.
