With Black Friday sales taking place early on Thursday way before Thanksgiving dinner is over, fights at big-box stores are starting earlier as well. Two women got into a scuffle at a Norwalk Walmart last night over a Barbie doll, and another two were arrested early this morning at a Kohl's in Tustin.

Norwalk Sheriff's Dept. deputies arrived at the Walmart located on the 11700 block of Imperial Highway after receiving a report about a fight occurring just before 7 p.m., CBS Los Angeles reported. Deputies said the two women involved pushed and shoved each other, with one of them allegedly threw a punch. However, no one was injured, and authorities were able to calm them down. There weren't any arrests made.

A shopper who witnessed the fight, Sonia, said, "The whole thing was pretty stupid."

Over in Tustin, police officers arrived at the Kohl's located on the 18100 block of Irvine Boulevard around 1 a.m. to respond to a fight between three women, according to KTLA. Two of those women were arrested on suspicion of assault and battery in the brawl that KTLA reports was over baby clothes. One woman was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure.
