Melee at Yuba City Sikh Temple, 2 Men Stabbed

YUBA CITY–

Dozens of men battled each other with brooms, shovels and knives in the parking lot of the Tierra Buena Sikh Temple Saturday night.

“We know who was fighting, we don’t know who started this,” one of the directors told FOX40.

Of the temple’s 4,400 members, many of them attribute recent violence to a shift in leadership. The old board is forcing an election while the new board is preventing one. FOX40 tried to get in touch with the old board, but they didn’t respond immediately.

In the midst of the chaos, two men were stabbed and more than a dozen were pepper sprayed. Deputies have not yet identified the victims, nor the attackers.
