3 Marines hurt defending woman in fight between Dodgers, Angels fans

Three Marines were attacked early Sunday morning after police say they defended a woman wearing an Angels jersey arguing with two men in a Dodgers jersey.

Huntington Beach police Lt. Mitch O'Brien says the woman got into a heated argument with two men over baseball even though neither team was playing nearby. The passing Marines reportedly got involved when the conflict escalated and tried to help the woman.

Police say two Marines were stabbed, one of them cut with a broken bottle in front of police. They remain hospitalized, but are expected to survive. The third was treated and released.

The Los Angeles Times reported that one of the Marines was stabbed in the face by a broken beer bottle.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and were being held in the Huntington Beach City Jail, the paper reported.
