A police SWAT team stormed a Los Angeles apartment early today, taking five people into custody, including a man suspected of the brutal beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow.



An assault suspect arrested in East Hollywood today is reportedly one of these two. Witnesses say he was bald, possibly making him the one on the left.



A police SWAT team stormed a Los Angeles apartment early today, taking five people into custody, including a man suspected of the brutal beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow.

Authorities say the man in custody is one of two alleged attackers in the March assault at Dodgers' Stadium, which left the 42-year-old father of two in a medically induced coma, according to KABC Los Angeles.

"I can't even tell you the emotions that we're feeling right now," Stow's sister Bonnie Stow said. "To be excited? We don't even know what we are feeling."

In March, Stow road-tripped nearly 300 miles with friends from Santa Cruz, Calif., to Los Angeles to watch the San Francisco Giants play the Los Angeles Dodgers on March 31.

On the way back to his car following the Giants' loss, things took an ugly turn.

"Two guys came out of nowhere. Both of them pushed Bryan from behind, he never saw them coming and Bryan fell forward and hit his head on the concrete and was immediately knocked unconscious," said David Collins, the victim's brother-in-law.

Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Sanford Rosenberg told reporters that the victim was one of three Giants fans attacked in the parking lot by two men in Dodger garb.

He said the attack was unprovoked.

Los Angeles County officials, along with contributions from both baseball teams, initially offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the pair - the fund eventually to grew to $200,000.

Los Angeles police said several people have been questioned after search warrants were served in the case.



Stow sustained brain damage from the attack and has been in and out of a medically-induced coma since the beating.

He was recently relocated from the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center to San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center so he could be closer to his family, according to KABC.
