“We noticed a guy with his girlfriend. He was hispanic and three white male came and they just started beating them up and punching them. Me and a couple of family members went to go stop them from fighting,” José, a witness who did not provide his last name told NBC News. “After that they started coming towards us and they pulled out some knives. They were saying that they would kill us.”
The three men were arrested and the couple did not suffer any serious injuries. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is treating the incident as a hate crime.
