Police said today that a mother and son are suspected of assaulting a man and leaving him in critical condition outside of Dodger Stadium following last Friday’s playoff game against the Mets.
The victim, believed to be a fan from Bakersfield, was punched and kicked in Parking Lot L, according NBC LA. Chief Charlie Beck, during a press conference earlier today, said a review of surveillance videos might reveal more information about the suspects and encouraged witnesses to come forward.
The L.A. Times, quoting a witness, said the victim was punched and knocked to the ground. A woman was then seen kicking the man after he had fallen. “You heard his skull hitting the concrete,” the witness told the L.A. Times.
The assault comes about five years after San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was brutally beaten in the stadium lot following the season opener.
Beck said “there will be a sea blue” if the playoffs return to Dodger Stadium later this week.
Update: The office of Councilman Gil Cedillo, whose district includes the ballpark, distributed a description of the suspects provided by the LAPD:
- Suspect 1 was described as a male White, medium height and weight, 25-30 years old, with light colored hair.
- Suspect 2 was described as a female White, about 5’3”, 40-50 years old, with blonde hair.
