Police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of two Dodgers fans wanted for attacking and severely beating a Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium Thursday afternoon.
Bryan Stow, 41, a paramedic from Santa Cruz and father of two, is hospitalized in medically induced coma at County-USC Medical Center due to injuries suffered in the Thursday night attack in Parking Lot 3.
Doctors reportedly removed part of his skull relieve pressure from swelling of the brain and were considering removing one of his frontal lobes.His prognosis is unclear.
"He's not doing well,'' his brother-in-law, David Collins, told a Santa Cruz newspaper Saturday. "They are hoping the brain swelling will go down, but it hasn't and they are talking about removing one of his frontal lobes.''
Stow was wearing San Francisco Giants apparel when he got into an argument with a group of Dodgers fans about 8:25 p.m., police said. Stow was knocked to the ground and kicked and beaten in the ensuing fight.
Though several people were involved in the brawl, police are looking for two central suspects -- both Hispanic men in Dodgers-branded clothing, 18-25 years old, with thin mustaches. One had numerous tattoos on his neck, and the other had a goatee. They fled in a light-colored four-door driven by a woman with a young boy inside.
Anyone with more information as to the names or whereabouts of the suspects was urged to call police at the Northeast Station at (213) 485-2563.
The reward, offered by the county, was sponsored by Supervisor Mike Antonovich.
