Two women were arrested Saturday afternoon for smearing black paint across the “Black Lives Matter” mural outside Trump Tower, with a city cop injured after he slipped while grabbing one of the suspects, police said.

The chaotic scene — the third attack by vandals targeting the Midtown street art in a week — began around 3 p.m. when a car carrying four women and 10 cans of paint arrived at the Fifth Ave. site, according to witness/street artist Nina Khan and a photo of the vehicle.
