Posted: 12:13 PM- Police in Salt Lake City arrested four people and cited 12 others who were protesting animal research.

The protest and the arrests occurred in the 2700 East block of Eagle Way Sunday at an address published by animal rights activists as the home of two University of Utah brain researchers.

Police were called to the address about 1 a.m. Sunday and said they found 10 people, most of whom were wearing bandanas on their face. The group said they were holding a silent candlelight vigil and the bandanas were for the "faceless victims" of animal research, according to a police log.

No arrests or citations were made at the time, but police returned about 8 p.m. and found 16 protesters. This time, police cited 12 people for picketing in a residential area. The other four were arrested and taken to jail on suspicion of the picketing, providing false information to police and outstanding warrants.

No injuries or damage was reported.
