  • Suspect in Custody in Giants Fan Beating Case

    http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktl...0,134898.story

    LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A suspect in the case of the brutal beating of San Francisco Giants Fan Brian Stow has been arrested, the reports confirm Sunday.

    The suspect was taken into custody around 7 a.m. at an East Hollywood apartment building.

    LAPD Northeast Division detectives and SWAT officers arrived with a warrant and arrested a man described as having a bald head and tattoos on his neck and arms, matching the vague description released by police last month.

    He did not appear to resist arrest, the Times said.

    At a news conference on Tuesday, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced there are 17 detectives working full-time on the case.

    The department has received about 500 various clues.

    Detectives say they have several strong leads, particularly pertaining to the female driver of the car that took the two suspects away on the night of the beating.

    The assault happened around 8:30 p.m. in Parking Lot 2 following the Dodgers home opener on March 31.

    Two suspects reportedly knocked Stow to the ground, kicking him repeatedly in the head.

    Stow suffered a severe skull fracture and bruising to his frontal lobe.

    The LAPD stepped up its presence at games since the March 31 beating, with officers on foot, horseback, bikes and Segways.

    The reward for information leading to their arrest and conviction now stands at more than $200,000.

    Stow was transferred to a Bay-area hospital last week after showing promising development.

    On Wednesday, doctors at San Francisco General Hospital said Stow has been weaned off of five anti-seizure medications and his brain did not show any seizure activity during 30 hours of constant monitoring.

    Excellent! Hopefully when it's all over in court and someone is convicted of it, the judge will do the right thing and send him to prison for as long as possible.

                The witness and the sketch artist did a great job. The picture looks exactly like him. Surprised his parole officer didn't put it together sooner.

                      alot of POs have up to 50 "babies" to watch over- wouldn't be surprised IF a PO didn't toss this fools name in the basket of "wanted" suspects.....

                        If Charlie Beck is so certain that he has the right guy, why hasn't he filed formal charges? Why isn't anyone talking about the line-up? I am hearing more questions than answers regarding this arrest.

                          RLRay...really? You really think the chief himself is going to walk the case over to the DA's office to request a filing? And do you think that since there are other suspects still outstanding, maybe - just maybe - it would be a bad idea for LAPD to divulge all of the information that they hold?

                            The nice thing about this case is the loser is on a parole hold right now.. It bought the Detectives some more time to investigate

                              Parole officers have caseloads now of between 300 and 400 parolees they must "supervise." That this agent put "2+2" together and came up with this suspect is quite a bit of police work. PO's are some of the most overworked and underrated people on our side and this one deserves a lot of credit, if what's circulating out there about this case is correct.
