LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities are hoping a bigger reward will lead them to the suspects in the brutal beating of a Giants fan at Dodger Stadium in March.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Tuesday the Dodgers have increased the size of the reward by $100,000, pushing the total amount offered past $200,000.
The Los Angeles Police Department will have an office at Dodger Stadium beginning Wednesday night to get tips from the public about Stow’s attack.
Officers also will distribute wanted fliers throughout the stadium during the two-game series against the San Francisco Giants, police announced Tuesday.
Beck says investigators are looking at about 500 leads in the March 31 beating of Bryan Stow.
Two suspects were driven away from the stadium by a woman in a light or white four-door sedan. Beck says she was wearing a white Dodgers jersey with the name of Andre Ethier and the number 16 on the back. The information about the female suspect and that she was wearing an Ethier jersey has not been revealed previously.
Stow was flown back to San Francisco on Monday after weeks of care in Los Angeles. He remains in critical condition.
