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.

‘Pence would be president by noon’: Morning Joe claims GOPers would dump Trump in a minute in a secret impeachment vote
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough believes the Senate would convict President Donald Trump by an overwhelming margin today if the vote were held in secret.
Former Sen. Jeff Flake said late last month that "at least 35" Republicans would vote to impeach Trump if the vote were secret, but the "Morning Joe" host and analyst Mike Barnicle agreed that number is much higher as public support grows for removing the president.
"I find it very interesting, very interesting that senators are being a little more careful in not attacking Mitt Romney," Scarborough said, referring to the Utah Republican who's been increasingly critical of the president. "Senators aren't rushing to Donald Trump's side. They don't know, for the first time, how this is going to play out. They're not so sure, for the first time, that Donald Trump can shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and get away with it."
Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing
"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.
"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.
I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"
The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.
"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Maddow warns Russia is interfering in the 2020 election in ‘exactly the same way’ as they did in 2016
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday warned that Russia and the Republicans are running the "exact same play" against Democrats in 2020 -- and this time will be aided by the United States Justice Department.
"And they are playing it again already for the next election. And some of it is happening just like it did in 2016. And some of it is worse and I think it’s going to be more powerful than it was in 2016. In part because this is a second draft for these guys, right? They ran this play in 2016. They worked out some of the kinks," she explained. "Now they’ll do it again with the benefit of knowing what worked for them and what didn’t work the first time around. It’s a second draft. It’s going to be better and more polished."
