LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating photos submitted by a CBS2 viewer that may provide information about the two men who brutally attacked Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium.

The photos, which are not being revealed at the request of the LAPD, are just one of hundreds of leads the department is pursuing.

“We get hundreds of tips… I know detectives are working through them,” said Chief Charlie Beck.

The photos have several things common with the suspect descriptions: they both feature two Latino men with tattoos, a mustache and goatee, as well as a woman with a brown pony tail and an off-white vehicle. In one photo, one of the men is wearing a Dodgers shirt.

One of the only beating witnesses to come forward, Joe Lagano, tells CBS2 he’s been in regular contact with the LAPD. They have asked him not to look at the photos so his eyewitness testimony is not jeopardized.

As for whether this will be the tip that helps solve the case, Beck says, “We’ll see if this one pans out.”

  1. Was Bryan abandoned? says:

    Where were Bryan’s buddies when this happened?? How far away could they have possibly been to avoid witnessing any part of this tragic scuffle? And with apparent prior exchanges with these thugs, why didn’t they band together and why was Bryan left to walk alone? (Random questions perhaps, but it’s all been nagging at me nonetheless).

  2. confused says:

    and they released the person coming forwards name why??

    1. Mark says:

      yeh, journalism and news reporting at it’s finest. On another note, being mexican, having tattoos, a goatee, and hanging out with a girl with a dark pony tail narrows it down to about 1,500,000. Multiculturalism at its finest!!

    2. TT says:

      that one i have no idea why they released his name …they may have a reason – not sure what it could have been ??????

    3. bcb says:

      Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. That is one reason why some people don’t want to get involved. Now this person may have to be concerned for his own safety because his name was released.

    They’re probably Stanford graduate students, like most people fitting that description are. They’re most likely not going to be a burden on our society and tax dollars. Instead, they will contribute to the betterment of America.

  4. Kellie says:

    All those fans leaving the game and walking through the parking lot and no one could grab these guys and hold them until the police came. That’s just wrong…..what ever happened to standing up for a fellow human being?

    1. DL says:

      Los Angeles… the “new” New York…

  5. Cici says:

    I had to read this twice. I could not believe my eyes! This witness’s name and face revealed! It’s obvious that the suspects are gang bangers that are willing to beat some one to death for poops and giggles, what’s to say they aren’t going to hunt down the witness and kill him so he won’t testify. I really hope this guy is protected.

  6. Mary says:

    AM640 interviewed the friend – the friend did try help, but everything happened so fast – like seconds.

    Why isnt the LAPD showing the video? We wouldnt want to violate the rights of any Hispanics. Charlie Beck is a two-inch turd. As soon as the “immigrant rights” group protested his licensce/insurance/registration checks in South-LA, he stopped them. I am glad I work for the Fire Department and not the LAPD. But then again, our Department doesnt have our back either. It’s great to work for the City of Los Angeles.,,,a sanctuary city where the mayor is a two-inch turd as well.

    1. Saber 1 says:

      Well said Buddy.

  8. Lou says:

    These homies are in mexico ,they are all first cousins, reason they all look alike.

  9. Marco says:

    For now hold all the questions. Hopefully LAPD follows the leads, catch the guys and begin to bring them to trial.

    Let’s hope Brian regains some portion of his Life back. His wife will let him know his friends ran.

    And all the cowards who stood around and watched….Karma will get them.

    Just catch these dangerous criminals.

    To be honest, these low lifes are probably down south in Mexico already. Laying low for a while. Hope they get caught ASAP. My prayers are with the Stow family.

  11. Mary says:

    To answer some of the above questions – Bryon is divorced. Bryon’s friend/s did not leave him and run. Bryon’s friend did TRY to help him, even by covering his head; however, the beating happened in the blink of an eye and by the time anyone could even think to what was going on (also in a blink of an eye) the damage was done. 911 needed to be called, and there was NO time to be wasted by fighting back. Bryon’s friends concern, and only concern, wad to get help for his injured friend. KFI, AM640, had a luve interview with Bryon’s friend. Bottom line – neither Bryon, nor his friend, is responsible for this crime. These men came to the game to enjoy a day of fun and baseball – never did Bryon come to the game to beat to any condition, especially the condition he is in. It is so important that these two men are caught before they go out and injure you, me, or one of our family members. To the guys who did this: you will get caught, and your days are numbered – THE POLICE ARE ALWAYS ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE BAD GUY…It’s jusy a matter of time.

  12. Mary says:

    Sorry for spelling/grammer errors..typing from my phone.

  13. true blue says:

    His own friend said, he liked to lay it a little more when it came to heckling. I don’t understand why he left the ballpark, knowing he was scared for his life. Why didn’t he go to the nearest police officer? Why would Dodger fans beat somebody up on a day the Dodgers won? Why didn’t his friends back him up knowing that during the game his text said, I am scared!!! We will probably never know the answer to these questions.

  14. Joe says:

    Chavalas what u doing in Mexico take it like real men, if they post a pic u Levas r caught here or in Mexico. Hope I don’t know u I myself f:?@ up and bring u Levas in.

  15. Marlene says:

    isnt it funny when a tragedy happens to a “normal” person, a white middle classed male, all this media attention is gained because “bad things arent supposed to happen to normal people”. what about all the other people who have been assaulted before? no media attention? im sure this has happened before countless times and nothing has been done to try to fix it before. it makes me so angry that it took this for the city to want to do something about it. i really hope Bryan gets better and my prayers go out to him and his family. It just makes me go in utter rage that until NOW they want to do something to fix security in the stadium.

  16. ILLEGALS says:

    Time to hide U thugs, even ur hommies will turn U in for the Rewards $$$$..

  17. ILLEGALS says:

    is it an Old Western “Dead or Alive” rewards $$$? Just curious coz what if their vatos try to turn ’em in & the ONLY way is to take ’em out cold. GANGLAND style!!

  18. Owned & Operated by the AVENUES says:

    If Stow is a Minority, i don’t think the media & public would make this into a big deal.

    Stow is WHITE so he gets ALL the Attentions from the media & WHITEYS.

    Stow is a Paramedic, so he gets the help & support from law enforcement family.

    it Stow was a Minority, this won’t be a big deal. Just an everyday Gang Statistics in LA.

  19. mark silvers says:

    Why jeapordize the life and safety of the one eye whitness. KNX should be ashamed to do this. This is not professional journalism (regardless whether the LAPD released the name or not. This should not have been released).

  20. Marco says:

    Has it ever occured to you Harvard Grads who post here that they printed the guys name to see if anyone comes after him, or inquires about who he is, which gets them closer to catching the actual suspects.

    Give them some credit that they are smart enough to know what they are doing before you jump to conclusions while posting from the saftey and comfort of your living room computer station.

    Sheeeshhh !!!

  21. John says:

    Did it ever occur to anybody that it was the fact it was opening day and the Giants won the World Series last year that contributed to the media attention and not the fact this guy is white? White guys get killed and beaten just like everyone else on any given day in the US. Stop trying to make it a matter of color when it’s really about two violent thugs that need to be put away. Let’s just focus on catching these fools.
