More than seven weeks after the beating of Bryan Stow in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles police have made an arrest in the case. One of the two suspects accused of the beating of the Giants fan on March 31 was arrested Sunday morning. The Los Angeles Times has more details:â†µ
As residents of the three-story building stood watching from balconies, police removed, one by one, the people who were inside the apartment, according to [apartment manager Maritza] Camacho. Among them was a man with a bald head and tattoos on his neck and arms, she said, a description that appeared to match the vague sketches released by police of one of the two suspects. She added that he did not appear to resist being taken into custody.â†µ
Several police sources confirmed that the man taken into custody was one of the two suspects in the beating.
The Dodgers a little over a week ago added $100,000 to the reward for information leading to the arrest of the two suspects, bringing the total to $200,000. Stow last week was transferred from Los Angeles to a San Francisco hospital. His recovery is unknown.â†µ
Mary Grady, the spokesperson for the LAPD, said a news conference would be held in parking lot G at Dodger Stadium Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. PDT to update the search warrants in the Stow case.â†µ
