A violent fight in Scripps Ranch Tuesday appears to have been over a woman, San Diego Police said.
Officers were called to Cypress Canyon Park at 2 a.m. Sticks or baseball bats were used in an argument that was apparently over a woman, police said. Three people were taken to the hospital.
Two men and a woman were hanging out when two men showed up, police said.
The original calls to police reported someone fighting near the park.
Officers arrived to the area of Caminito Festivo and Cypress Canyon Road, just south of the park.
Police say what started as a fist fight escalated when one of those involved grabbed a bat or a baton.
The victims got into a car and tried to drive away but crashed into a parked car along Cypress Canyon Road, police said.
Two suspects were seen in a dark-colored Toyota Corolla.
The three victims – two men and one woman – were expected to recover from their injuries. One was hospitalized.
