DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) - One man was stabbed during dueling demonstrations in downtown Los Angeles Saturday over the issue of mandatory vaccinations against the coronavirus.
Police said a fight broke out in front of City Hall, where one group was protesting what organizers referred to as "medical tyranny" and another group held a counter-protest called "no safe space for fascists."
In a tweet, the police department said, "LAPD is monitoring a protest at the south lawn of the LA City Hall. We are on scene to maintain order after a fight broke out. We are aware of 1 male that was stabbed & is being treated by LAFD. No arrests have been made but investigation is on going."
