A group of men attacked two women waiting at a Hillcrest bus stop after words were exchanged about where the men were trying to park.

The two women waiting for a bus at Fiftth Avenue and Robinson Avenue were beaten and kicked in the head around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Police officers said the women were attacked after they told a driver he couldn’t park in a red zone.

“That’s what just sparked it from there,” said Phil Hower with the San Diego Police Department.

After the words were exchanged, four men got out of two cars and beat up the women.  Two of the men in the group stopped the attack eventually. They then drove off in two separate cars.

Because the men went as far as kicking the women in the head, they could face charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

Police said they don’t have a clear description of the men or the cars. It appears the victims did not know their attackers.
