Six people were arrested and charged in the attack and stabbing of three Marines in Huntington Beach, Calif., during a fight over baseball.

Police Lt. Mitch O’Brien said a woman wearing an Angels jersey got into a heated argument with two men talking about the Dodgers at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of Main and Walnut streets, the Associated Press reported.

Three passing Marines got involved to try to help the woman, but a fight broke out.

Police said that as officers tried to break up the fight, one of the Marines was stabbed in the face with a broken beer bottle, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Two of the Marines were stabbed and remain hospitalized. The third was treated and released.

Manuel Alexis Alvarez, 23, and Victoria Robledo, 20, were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Police also arrested Paul Santino Forno, 22, Daniel Magadan, 24, Erik Alexander Gomez Chavez, 27, and Jessica Perez, 22, as they were all believed to be part of the same group.

The four were interviewed and released pending further investigation, the Times reported.
