SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – At least two people were stabbed and hospitalized, and three others injured after a massive brawl involving dozens of people broke out in the parking lot of a McDonald’s near San Jose State University.

The fight happened around 10 p.m. about a block away from the university on the corner of San Jose and Third Streets, and just hours after a free downtown concert let out.

Police said a small crowd started gathering before it quickly turned into a mob of more than 100 people, many of who began screaming, yelling, and throwing punches when a fight broke out.

Witnesses said the friends of one of the stabbing victims literally dragged him into a car and tried fleeing the scene, but police stopped them before they could get away.

Those who work downtown said word is getting out that San Jose is laying off police officers, leading to a spike in crime.

“A lot of things come from a lot of out-of-towners,” said restaurant manager George Bracamonte. “We talk to people, a lot of out-of-towners and I guess kind of an opinion I’ve heard was maybe a lack of resources in the police department, why the out-of-towners are coming here and doing what they do. As they call it get ‘hifey’ and crazy and disrespect the streets.”

Don't faint.

Police spokesman Jose Garcia said race may have been a motive in the brawl, and that about half the group was Latino, the other half black.

Honestly, nothing suprising there. I don't know much about that area, but if spending countless mids watching Lock Up on MSNBC has taught me anything, it's that those two groups in that area really hate each other.
