Authorities Monday were trying to figure out what happened when eight people were stabbed and six people were in custody after a gang-related melee in Anaheim, police reported.
The street fight erupted in the 400 block of Sycamore Street, Anaheim police spokesman Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.
Responding officers early Sunday found eight stabbing victims — five females and three males — and got a description of the alleged attackers car as a white Toyota Camry, Wyatt continued.
Two of the victims were female juveniles, one a 45-yeaar-old man and the others ranged in age from late teens to the early 20s. All the victims were from Anaheim and were reported in stable condition today, Wyatt added.
While police raced to the scene, one of the officers spotted the alleged suspect vehicle, Wyatt said. The Camry was stopped at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and East Street. Six suspects surrendered to police without incident, he said.
The suspects included three men and three women, aged between 17 and 24, Wyatt said. One girl was 17 and one boy was also 17. None of the suspects were injured.
All of the victims appeared to from one group and the suspects from another gang-related group.
The names of the suspects were not immediately available. The gangs involved were not released by police.
What started the melee remained under investigation, Wyatt said.
