A 39-year-old woman is accused of pulling a knife on another woman during a brawl at a Christmas toy giveaway in Detroit. A few hundred people were waiting in line on the city's northwest side Saturday night when the fight between adults broke out. No injuries have been reported.

The woman was arrested and the two children who were with her were collected by relatives from a police precinct. Giveaway organizer John Cromer told the television station that "people are already under a lot of stress and tension this time of year" and "all it takes (is) for some people to step on somebody's shoes or to bump into somebody the wrong way and then a fight ensues."
