He added: "We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough". In 2011, Yemen fell into chaos after an uprising deposed Saleh.

He says the man fled after striking them around 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Two other people were stabbed during the brawl, and were also in a stable condition. The third was hospitalized in stable condition.

The driver then got back in the vehicle and drove onto the sidewalk about half a block away, striking six victims.

Police have not released any information about the victims, the driver or the vehicle.

Police still were sorting out the details, but authorities say there was a dispute before the man drove into the people.
