RICHMOND, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Two people were arrested for trespassing outside of the Executive Mansion on Saturday.

The Virginia Division of Capitol Police says that two men were outside the main gate of the governor’s residence, yelling toward the building shortly after 12:30 p.m., when Capitol Police officers approached them, identified themselves and told the pair they needed a permit to protest inside the grounds of Capitol Square.

When the two men were asked to leave, they refused and were subsequently arrested.

Neil E. Wolfe, 51, of Richmond, and Mark A. Sfeir, 23, of Winchester, Va., were taken to the city jail and processed on one count each of trespassing, a misdemeanor.
