Update: L.A. Mayor Antonio Villariagosa and Police Chief Beck revealed that the arrests resulted from "a vigilant parole officer" recognizing the "primary aggressor" from the photo sketches.
Seven weeks after San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was brutally beaten and left for dead outside Dodger Stadium, two suspects in the attack have been arrested, the LAPD announced Sunday.
Police have a man and a woman in custody following an early morning raid on an apartment building in East Hollywood.
The male in custody is believed to be one of the two assailants suspected of carrying out the vicious attack that took place on opening day, March 31, when the Giants played the Dodgers.
Onlookers at the dawn raid confirmed one of the people arrested was a man with a bald head and tattoos on his neck and arms, similar to the sketches police released of the suspects and plastered over 200 billboards with the offer of a $100,000 reward for information.
That reward fund has since increased to $200,000 but police have not yet revealed if a tipster seeking the money led to the arrests.
Stow, a father of two and a paramedic, was attacked in the Dodger Stadium parking lot following the game and left with severe brain damage.
He was recently moved from Los Angeles to San Francisco General Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
