SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 44-year-old woman and her 20-year-old son were behind bars Wednesday after a Christmas Day gathering in North Park turned violent and two guests went to the hospital with stab wounds, according to police.
The melee in the 4400 block of 30th Street occurred at approximately 2:50 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
A 48-year-old man was stabbed in the chest with a knife and cut in the head when he was struck by a coffee pot, Stafford said in a statement.
Also, a 59-year-old man was cut in the armpit, he said.
Paramedics rushed the men to an area hospital, where none of their injuries were considered life-threatening.
The mother and son were each arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Their names were not immediately released.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a former San Diego police officer accused of groping four women during pat-down searches last year.
