When officers arrived on scene they located a family of four people who told police they had just left a restaurant a block away when one woman was tackled by a female actor who also grabbed her by the hair.

Her husband tried to intervene and received a severe contusion to his eye from a male actor.

Their son jumped in to help, but was not injured. Police had arrived on the scene by this time and took the two suspects into custody.

The couple was transported to the hospital in stable condition.
