"They were fighting with knives I and pipes," said Det. Sgt. Bill Hawley "Several people got hurt." Weapons, including a knife, five or six pipes and a machete, were seized by police after the fight among about 20 people at the Kennedy subway station in suburban Scarborough. A group of more than 15 young people associated with the Anti-Racist Action organization got off the subway at 2 a.m. and followed three young people to a nearby bus terminal, said Det. Wayne King, lead investigator for the case. The anti-racists accused the three of being neo-Nazis, which the trio has denied. King said he suspected the anti-racists were out "trolling, looking for trouble." "You just don't go out with knives, pipes and machetes under your coat... They taunted these I people and harassed them" King said. One person pulled a pocket knife 2 others pulled out machetes and pipes, leaving the subway station treated with blood. One member of the anti-racist group was in stable condition Saturday after he was stabbed in the jugular vein and lost about two-thirds of his blood. Two others were treated for minor stab wounds. Two people accused of being neo-Nazis were in custody Saturday. Adrian Kaddie, 22, faces a charge of attempted murder. Kristian Brandes, 19, faces charges of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and weapons dangerous. They're expected to appear in court Monday. King said he expects to lay charges early this week against members of the anti-racist group. No member of the group could be reached immediately to comment. Anti-Racist Action was started in September 1992 and grew fast attracting hundreds of young people to its gatherings and working to counter recruiting efforts of white supremacists. The group's tactics have alienated more moderate anti-racists.
