Eight people stabbed in Anaheim street fight; six arrested
Eight people were stabbed in a violent street fight in Anaheim early Sunday morning that police said appeared to be gang-related.
The fight broke out at 1:20 a.m. in the 400 block of Sycamore Street, said Sgt. Daron Wyatt of the Anaheim Police Department.
The victims were taken to a local hospital. Two arrived in critical condition, Wyatt said.
But as of Sunday evening all eight victims were listed in stable condition, Wyatt said.
Two of the victims were young women between the ages of 16 and 17, and one was a 45-year-old man, Wyatt said. The others were in their late teens or early 20s.
A witness said the attackers fled in a white Toyota Camry. But one of the officers arriving at the scene spotted the Camry and was able to stop it.
Six suspects, including three men and three women, were arrested in connection with the incident, Wyatt said. The suspects ranged in age from 17 to 24.
