    The scene outside of Spreckles Theatre in downtown San Diego following a fight on Apr. 5, 2014.

    Three victims were attacked by two men in front of Spreckels Theatre in downtown San Diego Saturday morning, officials from the San Diego Police Department confirmed.

    The altercation happened just after 10 a.m. in front of Spreckles Theatre located at 220 Broadway Circle.

    SDPD Sgt. Ruben Gutierrez told NBC 7 that three Spreckels workers were allegedly assaulted by two men who, according to a Spreckels Threatre security guard, were acting belligerent.

    Gutierrez said the suspects may have been intoxicated. They allegedly opened the door to the theatre and when employees inside told them to leave, a fight ensued, spilling into the street.

    The victims sustained minor injuries, including cuts and bruises in the scuffle. Gutierrez said one of the victims is in their 60s.

    The two assault suspects were arrested by police. Gutierrez said the men face assault charges and will be booked in San Diego Central Jail.

    NBC 7 was there when the men were detained and put into the back of an SDPD patrol vehicle. One suspect was sticking his tongue out and making faces through the window of the vehicle and writing things in chapstick on the window (see photo). The other man appeared to be passed out in the backseat.

    No further details were released, and no additional injuries were reported in the assault incident.
