Police say the five climbed over an outer perimeter fence around 8:30 p.m. and tried to enter a restricted area.
All were immediately arrested by police and Secret Service agents and never made it inside of the DNC.
They were taken to the Philadelphia Federal Detention Center and will appear before a judge later Wednesday.

“We just have a social and injustice problem,” said Sonja Burketh. “It’s much deeper than most people realize.”
Some protesters set fire to flags and leaflets outside of the convention site.
But in a crowd of thousands, many had common causes.
Kristi Reish says, “I think in solidarity we can win. One of the chants I heard was ‘the people united will never be defeated.'”
On Monday, 54 people were cited for trying to climb a similar perimeter fence.MORE NEWS: 11th Graders At Northeast High School Quarantining After 'Multiple' COVID Cases, Principal Says
