Following Sunday morning's arrest of Giovanni Ramirez, the prime suspect in the Bryan Stow Dodger Stadium beating investigation, the Los Angeles Police Department have provided details about the attack and at least one suspect who remains at large.

According to the LAPD, the attack on Bryan Stow went as follows:

Stow was leaving Dodger Stadium along with several of his friends, following the conclusion of the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. the San Francisco Giants baseball game. The two suspects, who were wearing Dodger attire, began taunting the victims because of their affiliation with the San Francisco Giants. As the victim and his friends attempted to walk away from the suspects, the victim was hit from behind and fell to the ground. The suspects then kicked the victim as he lay on the ground. The victim’s friends attempted to intervene and they too were hit by the suspects. Stow suffered a severe skull fracture. The two suspects were last seen leaving Parking Lot 2, driven away from the stadium by a woman in a light or white four-door sedan. It is believed that she was wearing a white Dodgers jersey with the name of Andre Ethier and the number 16 on the back. Both the woman and the second suspect involved in the attack on Stow are still at large, and detectives are asking the public to continue to provide any information that could lead to their arrest.

Although others were detained yesterday for questioning, only Ramirez has been arrested, and is being held on $1 million bail.

The LAPD have been aggressively working the Stow beating case, and, since the attack took place on March 31, have received over 630 leads from law enforcement and the community. Last week, donated "WANTED" billboards were set up all over the city, and authorities noticed an increase in tips coming in once those signs were in place. However, it was a tip from a parole agent that ultimately led the LAPD to Ramirez.
