The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said they received numerous calls around 4:30 p.m. from people reporting white supremacists attacking people at Stephen Sorensen Park.
Police said the men were screaming “Heil Hitler” and racial slurs — and waving a wallet with a Confederate flag — as they taunted and assaulted three Hispanic teens.
A family tried to intervene in the scuffle, but the white supremacists pulled out knives and threatened them, police said.
“They just started beating them up,” the father of that family, who wished to remain anonymous, explained to NBC Los Angeles. “They started coming towards us, and they pulled out some knives, and they were saying they would kill us.”
The men fled the park after being told police had been called, but were eventually captured.
Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
No one was seriously injured.
The attack came just one day after a Ku Klux Klan rally in nearby Anaheim turned violent, resulting in three counter-protesters being stabbed and two KKK members being “stomped.”
Five members of the KKK who were arrested for their involvement in the Anaheim incident were released on Monday. Police said the KKK members stabbed the counter-protesters in self-defense.

‘They never worked a job’: Eric Trump attacks Pelosi and Schumer for leading ‘lavish’ lives
Eric Trump, the son of President Donald Trump, on Thursday slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for leading "lavish" lives.
During a Fox & Friends segment, host Brian Kilmeade suggested that weekly unemployment claims had fallen below 1 million for the first time in five months because the federal government was not able to extend jobless benefits for those impacted by COVID-19.
Eric Trump suggested that Pelosi is a hypocrite because she supported a temporary payroll tax deferment in 2012 but opposes similar action taken by the president in 2020.
Trump’s ‘not smart’ attacks on Kamala Harris as an angry Black woman will backfire: CNN’s Van Jones
CNN's Van Jones on Thursday said that President Donald Trump's decision to attack presumptive Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as an "angry" Black woman would backfire.
Reacting to the president's remarks about Harris during a Fox Business interview, in which he called her "a mad woman" who is "so angry," Jones said that Trump would only work to make the California senator more of a sympathetic figure.
‘Months to prepare’: Trump’s ‘disarray’ after Kamala Harris joins Biden mocked on Morning Joe
MSNBC's John Heilemann marveled at the "total disarray" in President Donald Trump's response to Sen. Kamala Harris joining the Democratic ticket.
The president has seemed even more off than usual since Joe Biden named the California Democrat his running mate, the "Morning Joe" contributor said, although Trump and the Republican Party should have been prepared for that likely scenario.
"If you think about the metrics by which we judge in politics, a VP rollout, they controlled the timing, didn't have a leak that came out, got out ahead of them," Heilemann said. "All the electronic means they used on Tuesday to get the word out, 24 hours later you had a unified Democratic Party. No faction of the party taking potshots at the pick. Not just unified but enthused, donors writing checks. Small donors on the web giving the campaign its biggest fund-raising campaign in history. Everything you could want on the Democratic side and rave reviews from the press. A candidate who cleared the bar ready to be commander in chief. No one questioning their qualifications, and on the Republican side, total disarray in terms of what the message is supposed to be."
