3 Stabbed, 12 Arrested and 1 Person Sought After KKK, Protesters Clash in Anaheim

Three people were stabbed, 12 were arrested — including a juvenile, and one man was being sought after a “walking protest” involving the Ku Klux Klan turned violent as members of the group clashed with counterprotesters in Anaheim on Saturday, according to the local police department.

Violence erupted after six suspected members of the KKK arrived at the south side of Pearson Park, located at 400 North Harbour Blvd., for a planned “walking protest,” an Anaheim Police Department news release stated.

About 30 counterprotesters immediately confronted the KKK members, police said.

During the melee, KKK members allegedly stabbed three counterprotesters, and two KKK members were “stomped on the ground” by counterprotesters, according to police.

Four people were hospitalized, including the three stabbing victims and one stomping victim who was listed in stable condition.

One of the stabbing victims was initially transported to an area hospital in critical condition, but police later said he was stable. The two other stabbing victims were also in stable condition. …

Five suspected KKK members — four males and one female — were initially arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in connection to the stabbings …

It was not known why the KKK chose Anaheim for Saturday’s demonstration, but the group has had a sporadic presence in Orange County and a long history in the Anaheim area, the Times reported.

At one time, four of five Anaheim City Council seats were held by Klansmen before they were removed in 1924, and nearly 300 once lived in the area.

More recently, KKK business cards and anti-MLK propaganda was left in the front of dozens of Santa Ana homes in January 2015, and in July 2014 KKK recruitment flyers were distributed in the city of Orange.
