ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Occupy protesters have apparently left their mark in St. Louis.

Mayor Slay posts to Facebook say that city Director of Public Safety Eddie Roth’s home has twice been marked with Occupy graffiti.

Some of the protesters, gathering here from across the Midwest, blame Roth for Thursday night’s violent encounter with police, and they’ve spread his name on Twitter.

Roth says “we are fine — annoyed but not worried.”

Meantime, a utility box near Tower Grove Park has “OCCUPY!” spray painted on it. There’s also a handwritten note taped to the box which says, “Occupy St. Louis did not condone this spray painting and will be having it removed A.S.A.P.”
