Bryan Stow Dodger Stadium Attack Suspect Taken Into Custody [Update]
Early Sunday morning, around 7:00 a.m., one of the two assailants suspected in the brutal Dodger Stadium beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow that left the Paramedic father of two in a coma, was taken into custody as the LAPD SWAT team as they "descended on an East Hollywood apartment building with a warrant in hand," sources say, reports the L.A. Times.
According to the building manager, police on loudspeakers with guns drawn, "called out to the occupants of Apartment 25," as residents of the three-story building watched from balconies. Reportedly among the residents was a bald man with tattoos on his neck and arms. Notes the L.A. Times, "Several police sources confirmed that the man taken into custody was one of the two suspects in the beating," but officials declined giving additional details including the name of the suspect.
The man taken into custody had not been a longtime resident of the building, according to the manager. Stow was moved last week from County-USC Medical Center in Los Angeles and remains in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital.
[Update] 10:58 a.m.
A news conference has been called for 4:00 p.m. Sunday at Dodger Stadium. LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, LAPD Central Bureau Deputy Chief Jose Perez, LAPD Northeast Area Captain Bill Murphy and LA Dodgers representatives will provide updated information on the assault investigation, notes an LAPD press release.
