Giants fan beating: Second man, woman, sought in Dodger Stadium beating - latimes.com

A day after arresting a suspect in the near-fatal beating of a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles police detectives pressed ahead Monday with the search for two other suspects, as senior LAPD officials scrambled to mitigate the potential damage done to the investigation by a news leak.

Early Sunday, police took Giovanni Ramirez into custody. Ramirez, 31, a documented gang member, is accused of being one of two men who attacked Bryan Stow on March 31 in the stadium parking lot after the rival teams played. Stow, 42, suffered brain damage in the attack and remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Ramirez is being held on $1-million bail. Prosecutors have not formally charged him.

Still at large is the second assailant and a woman who police said drove the men away from the stadium. Police largely remained silent on the status of the hunt, saying only that detectives were continuing to pursue solid leads on the two individuals.
