Police seek suspects after fan beating

The Los Angeles police department is searching for two men who were involved in an altercation after Thursday night's Opening Day game at Dodgers Stadium, The Associated Press reported.

The AP account cited a sergeant in the Los Angeles Police Department who said that two men critically injured a Giants fan in the parking lot after the game. Sgt. Sanford Rosenberg said that the two suspects were dressed in Dodgers clothing and that they followed three men in Giants apparel to the parking lot following Thursday night's game.

Rosenberg said that the attackers yelled slurs against the Giants fans before physically assaulting them. One of the victims suffered a head injury and was hospitalized in critical but stable condition. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

"It is extremely unfortunate that this incident took place on what was otherwise a great day at Dodger Stadium for tens of thousands of fans," the Dodgers said in a statement. "We're committed to having the most fan- and family-friendly environment in baseball and will continue to make that a top priority. We are cooperating fully with authorities during their investigation and we wish this fan a speedy recovery."

The suspects are unknown at this point, and investigators are asking people with information to call the police.
