CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland police are advising the public not to take stickers from people they don’t know in the RNC area after officers were treated for skin irritation Thursday.
Police said that two members of law enforcement were treated for skin irritation issues.
One of the officers said he experienced numbing and burning after receiving a sticker.
The stickers are being tested to determine if they are connected to the skin irritation issues.
But members of the public are advised that if they took a sticker from someone they didn’t know, they should remove it and wash their skin with soap and water.
Police also said at the briefing that there were no arrests on Thursday at RNC-related events.
There were rumors that some officers had been stabbed or poked with syringes, but that did not happen.

Chief Calvin Williams previously said Monday and Tuesday were relatively quiet with only 5 arrests.
During Wednesday night’s briefing, Williams said that 17 people were arrested and two officers were assaulted.
