The altercation took place before the festival grounds were open to the public

A brawl took place on Sunday morning at Coachella, resulting in two security guards getting stabbed.

According to the initial investigation, at 10:52 AM on Sunday, a fight broke out between two groups of security guards who were employed by the same security company. 

A member on one side of the fight had a pocket knife and apparently stabbed two members of the opposing group. Both victims were sent to the hospital with one man being released with wounds to his face and head while the other victim was stabbed in the abdomen and remained at the hospital in stable condition.

Sgt. Dan Marshal of the Indio Police Department said that the incident occurred before the venue was open "and the area where this took place was completely back-of-house." 

With that being said, people did witness the altercation and anyone with more information should call 760-391-4057.
