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.

Iowa Republican backtracks after hinting Kellyanne Conway is leaving the White House
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) hinted that Kellyanne Conway may be on her way out of the White House for violating federal law.
The Iowa Republican was asked to comment on findings by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel that Conway had repeatedly violated the Hatch Act by promoting political campaigns during public TV appearances as a senior adviser to President Donald Trump.
"Obviously there has been a commission that has decided that's not appropriate, so she is being removed from that position," Ernst told WHO-TV. "We certainly want to be working towards the good of all Americans. Obviously, she wants to support the president's initiatives. She is an adviser -- or was an adviser -- but she used her position differently."

Meghan McCain mystifies co-hosts by defending Trump with a bizarre Ebola rant: ‘It’s my No. 1 fear in life’
Meghan McCain briefly derailed a conversation on "The View" about President Donald Trump humiliating his chief of staff during a TV interview.
The president ordered White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney out of the Oval Office after he coughed as Trump was speaking to ABC News, and McCain said she couldn't blame him.
"My No. 1 fear in life, in general, above all things, is getting the Ebola virus, above all else," McCain said. "It's my biggest fear in the entire world."
Her comment seemed to amuse co-host Joy Behar, who cracked a grin.
"Ebola virus?" Behar said. "Do they have that here?"
