Marines stabbed during Huntington Beach brawl between Angel-Dodger fans


Authorities say a woman wearing an Angels shirt was arguing with two other women who were Dodger fans in the area of Main and Walnut streets when the argument escalated into a fight.

"The woman in the Angels shirt was knocked to the ground and was being beaten while on the ground and kicked in the head," said Huntington Beach Chief Rob Handy.

Three Marines jumped in to help the first woman, but they were attacked by the female suspects' friends, police said. The incident, which happened as the bars let out around 1:45 a.m., was captured on cellphone video.

Manuel Alexis Alvarez, a 23-year-old man from Downey, allegedly stabbed one of the Marines in the face with a broken bottle. Another Marine had also been stabbed. Both men were taken to a local hospital, where they are in stable condition. A third male victim, also a Marine, was located in a San Diego area hospital and was treated and released.

Alvarez and 20-year-old Victoria Robledo of Norwalk were arrested and were booked on assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say more arrests and charges are possible as they continue the investigation. Anyone with more information or cellphone video of the fight is urged to call the Huntington Beach Police Department at (714) 375-5066.
