2 accused of stabbing Marines in Huntington Beach fight post bail

Two people accused of stabbing three Marines in a downtown Huntington Beach street fight are out of jail, police said Tuesday.

Manuel Alexis Alvarez, 23, of Downey, and Victoria Robledo, 20, of Huntington Beach, each posted $25,000 bond Monday after being booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, the Huntington Beach Independent reported.

A preliminary court date is set for May 29, officials said. The two were arrested after a fight broke out between Dodgers and Angels fans downtown.

Six people were arrested Sunday in the fight that broke out over the two baseball teams. Police said the 1:45 a.m. incident took place near Main and Walnut streets, just blocks from the beach.

Officers said the incident apparently began when a woman wearing an Angels jersey got into a dispute with two people who were talking about the Dodgers.

As the conflict grew, three Marines who were passing by attempted to come to the aid of the woman but ended up being attacked and stabbed.

As officers tried to break up the fight, one of the Marines was stabbed in the face with a broken beer bottle, police said.

Police also arrested Paul Santino Forno, 22, of Whittier; Daniel Magadan, 24, of Whittier; Erik Alexander Gomez Chavez, 27, Norwalk; and Jessica Perez, 22, of Downey. The four were interviewed and released pending further investigation, according to authorities.

The six arrested were believed to be part of the same group, said Lt. Mitch O’Brien.

Anyone with information or cellphone video of the incident is asked to call the Huntington Beach police tip line at (714) 375-5066.
