A fight in Pescadero led to the arrest of seven farm workers on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy, reports the Almanac.

Around 8:20 a.m., deputies responded to a 911 call reporting a fight among a group of men in the 900 block of Bean Hollow Road, in an area where farm workers live, said Lt. Ray Lunny of the Sheriff’s Office.

The deputies found three male assault victims, two of whom needed to be taken to a hospital for treatment.

The victims had apparently been attacked with various weapons, including sticks and knives, by a group of men, Lt. Lunny said.
