Most of the parasites have left, but the assaults on women continues.

Two men were arrested in separate incidents in Zuccotti Park Saturday afternoon, police said, one for forcibly touching a woman and one for messing with Christmas lights.

Zach Breur, 22,who is homeless, was charged with two counts of forcible touching after grabbing a 22-year-old woman’s breasts and buttocks about 5:10 p.m., cops said.

Michael Doe, 27, was arrested about 25 minutes later for cutting wires to the park’s Christmas lights, installed by private workers Saturday.

“They were putting them up all day,” a police source said of the lights. “This guy took it upon himself to start destroying them.”

Doe, who is also homeless, is charged with criminal mischief, officials said.

Meanwhile, another occupier was arrested for carrying an illegal firearm.

Cops busted a man from Youngstown, Ohio this weekend for driving around the OWS protest and Lower Manhattan with an unregistered gun.

Law enforcement said Joshua Fellows, 32, had a .45-calibre handgun and 32 rounds of ammunition in a truck he’d rented in North Carolina.

Fellows was originally busted on Thursday at 12:40 p.m. at Broadway and Exchange Place on a reckless driving charge after cops saw up to 40 people jumping in and out of the Budget rental truck

They seized the truck and found the gun during a search, and found Fellows Saturday at 9:10 p.m. at West Street and Rector Place.

He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, arraigned, and was later released.

In all police arrested five people during the weekend, including Fellows, a protester who threw liquid in a cop’s face and another alleged groper for attacking a woman, cops said today.

Isn’t Mayor Bloomberg tough on guns? How is this guy gets picked up on a weapons charge and is already roaming free?
