Prompted by an altercation recently in a Newport Beach bar, SWAT teams conducted raids on a number of Orange and Riverside county homes early Wednesday, with members of a Christian motorcycle gang arrested in connection to several stabbings.
Members of the "Set Free Soldiers" gang were taken into custody for investigation of attempted murder. There were no injuries reported during the raids.
In all, authorities served 11 search warrants in Anaheim, Costa Mesa and Rancho Santa Margarita in Orange County and Norco in Riverside County.
Members of the Christian gang reportedly got into a fight with Hell's Angels members at the Newport Beach bar, resulting in three people being stabbed.
