Two topless women who invaded Donald Trump’s polling place in New York City in protest of the Republican presidential candidate were arrested Tuesday, police said.

The women—identified by police as 28-year-old Tiffany Robson and 30-year-old Neda Topaloski—removed their shirts at a public school gymnasium in Midtown shortly after 8 a.m. and chanted, “Grab your balls! Out of our polls!” according to the New York Daily News.

Trump was not at the polling site during their roughly 30-second demonstration.

One woman had “Trump, grab your balls” scrawled on her body, and the other had “Hate out of my polls” written on hers. They were arrested for electioneering within 100 feet of a polling station, NBC News reports.

The demonstrators said they are part of an international feminist group called FEMEN. Topaloski told the Daily News that “we use our bodies to express our ideas.” “If you have an authoritarian, nationalist and sexist presidential candidate, women will come to answer back,” she said.
