The search continues, and the reward increases, for two men who carried out a vicious attack on San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, a 41-year-old Santa Cruz paramedic and father of two who was beaten in a coma in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium after last week's home opener, reports The Dodgers on Tuesday.

[T]he total reward for information in the case has been increased to $50,000. The Dodgers have added $25,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction to go along with $10,000 each from the Giants and LA County Supervisor Michael Antonovich. American Medical Response, the employer of victim Brian Stow, also offered $5,000.

On Monday, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa reportedly spoke with Stow's mother vowing to "employ all resources to find the attackers," reports LA Now. Additionally, American Medical Reponse, Stow's employer, has set up a donation trust to benefit Stow’s children and to assist his family with expenses while they are here in Los Angeles.

Sketches of the suspects were released late Friday however investigators have not yet been able to identify the car the two men used to flee. According to the LA Times, police believe a 10-year-old boy may have been inside the vehicle.
