LOS ANGELES (AP) Police detained a suspect Sunday in the brutal beating of a San Francisco Giants fan after the opening game at Dodger Stadium, authorities said.The suspect was among several people detained for questioning after police served search warrants in the case, Los Angeles Police Det. Jose Carillo said. Police said he was one of two suspects that have been sought in the case.It's unclear whether the others detained possible witnesses or suspects in the March 31 beating that left Brian Stow with brain damage, Police Sgt. Kunch said.Several search warrants were served at an apartment building, Kunch said, but he couldn't say how many people were detained or whether they are male or female. Building manager Maritza Camacho told the Los Angeles Times that a SWAT team descended on the East Hollywood apartment with guns drawn.Among the people marched out of the building was a man with a bald head and tattoos on his neck and arms, Camacho said, a description that appeared to match the vague sketches released by police of one of the two suspects. She added that he did not appear to resist being taken into custody.Stow, a 42-year-old paramedic and father of two, was beaten in a parking lot by two men in Dodgers gear after the season opener against the Giants. No arrests have been made.Last week, doctors reported that Stow is opening his eyes but remains in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital.Police Chief Charlie Beck said recently that detectives are looking into about 500 leads in their search for the attackers.Rewards totaling more than 200,000 have been offered for information leading to the suspects' arrests.
