Three people were stabbed during a soccer game brawl Sunday at El Camino High School in Whittier, California, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

More than 20 people were involved in the fight that took place during an adult male soccer game at the school, Sgt. Brian Neel of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said. He also said those injured suffered from non-life threatening injuries and were being treated at a local hospital.

The suspect, who was said to have stabbed the three people, is still at large and has been described as wearing a black t-shirt at the time, according to the police department. Adrian Marquez, a witness at the scene, said the fight started when a foul was called, Tribune Media's KTLA reported.

"The teams started arguing but then they calmed down," Marquez said. "What got everything heated was when the coach — he punched one of the opposing players ... and that's when everyone got involved. Everybody — the whole teams. It was crazy." He also mentioned people watching the match also joined the fight and at some point, someone was seen stabbing people.

Soccer brawls are fairly common. The struggle on the pitch sometimes tends to spill over the field, leading to heated exchanges -- and more -- among players, teams and audiences.

One of the most infamous fights was reported during a Premier League game in 1995 between the Crystal Palace and Manchester United, when a former French player for United, Eric Cantona, launched himself into the crowd and kicked a Crystal fan, Simmons. The fan was abusing Cantona after he was sent off in a game against Crystal, according to MSN.

Another infamous brawl took place in October, 1990, at a game at Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, in the United Kingdom, between two Premiere League giants — Arsenal and Manchester United. The fight involved a 21-man tussle, and many believe it marked the significant turning point when the rivalry between the two teams began. This fight had serious implications for both teams — while United was docked at one point by the governing bodies, Arsenal was given a two-point fine.

And it's not always the rivals who fight. Stoke City players Andy Griffin and Ricardo Fuller were embroiled in a fight in 2008 while playing against West Ham United who they lost to. Fuller slapped Griffin and the referee dismissed him for his actions. Fuller later blamed Griffin for the loss and was banned for three games and had to pay a fine of $45,000 for his misdemeanors, according to Sportster.com.

In 2005, Newcastle United's Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer engaged in a heated argument on the field that escalated into a fist fight. The fight — which became an amusing spectacle when other team members struggled to keep them apart — resulted in a ban for seven games for Bowyer. Both the players had to make a public apology, according to MSN.
