Protester arrested during Vice President Harris’ visit to San Diego area

FAIRBANKS RANCH, Calif. (FOX 5/KUSI) — A protester calling for a ceasefire in Gaza was arrested Friday in the Fairbanks Ranch neighborhood during Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to the San Diego area for a political fundraiser, authorities said.

Around 3 p.m., Harris’ motorcade arrived in the 1600 block of Circa del Norte where about 50 protesters gathered outside the gated entrance to the Fairbanks Ranch community, Lt. Gavin Lanning with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

“One of the protesters jumped in front of the motorcade to stop Vice President Harris from entering the neighborhood,” Lanning said.

Authorities detained the protester blocking the motorcade, but another protester intervened, causing the first protester to run away.

Anisa Rebecca Chaudry, 36, was identified as the second protester, according to law enforcement. She was arrested on suspicion of obstructing a peace officer and taken to the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station where she was cited and released.

The protest ended after 45 minutes. There was no property or vehicle damage, and no injuries were reported.
