LOS ANGELES—On October 9, following the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets game, an argument transpired between fans at Dodger Stadium’s Parking Lot L.
The altercation, which took place at around 10:30 p.m., escalated into an assault by two suspects against one victim. The suspects were reportedly a mother and her son. Witnesses described the attack, saying that the man was punched and fell on the ground, causing damage to his skull. His head was bleeding heavily, and bystanders aided the attacked man by trying to stop the bleeding with free rally towels that had been handed out during the game.
According to the LAPD blog, one of the suspects was described as “a male, white, medium height and weight, 25-30 years old, with light colored hair.”
The second suspect was described as white female, about 5 feet and 3 inches tall, between 40-50 years old and with blonde hair.
The victim was transported to a local hospital and remains in serious but stable condition.
The Los Angeles Police Department Robbery Homicide Division is continuing to conduct a thorough investigation regarding the incident, as they review video footage and interview witnesses.
A similar event transpired in in 2011, when two Dodger fans were sentenced to prison for attacking San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow. Stow became physically disabled and suffered permanent brain damage.
