on July 15 2013 1:33 AM

Police officers made a number of arrests Sunday night as raucous protesters, outraged over the acquittal of George Zimmerman of all criminal charges associated with last year's shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, marched through the streets of Manhattan.

The NYPD did not immediately release information about the number of arrests made during the late-night protest march, but the International Business Times witnessed at least three people being handcuffed by police officers as the protesters made their way from Union Square to Harlem.

The rowdy and emotional display came just hours after more subdued demonstrations took place, without incident, in the confines of leafy Union Square.

Protesters walked between cars on major roads including Second and Sixth avenues, shutting them down for some time as they made their way uptown, and police attempted to divert them by lining up blockades across roadways.

But first the protesters made their way to Times Square, where they staged a variety of actions including sitting in the middle of the street and chanting slogans. Many headed home before a dedicated contingent of several hundred began to make their way north to Harlem, where they congregated at about midnight.

The International Business Times did not witness any overt violence on the part of either protesters or the police, but protesters did bang on car windows with plastic bottles and ran through the streets in a way that closed down many blocks and caused massive traffic snarls for much of the night.

Below is a selection of exclusive photos, from the International Business Times, of Sunday night's Trayvon Martin march in New York City:
