Brian StowBrian Stow, Santa Cruz’s family caregiver Stow Bryan confirmed Monday morning that the arrest was made in the beating out of Dodgers Stadium, Stow left severely brain damaged in a coma.

Sister Bonnie Stow Stow said the arrest of one of two men suspected in the attack in the stadium parking lot March 31 after a game between the Dodgers and Giants in San Francisco comes as a relief for all family.

“It’s huge. We are very excited to say the least. My mother and I have not stopped shaking since the call,” said Bonnie Stow. “At least have one in custody. It’s one less thing on our minds.”

The arrest took place about 7 am Sunday in an apartment in East Hollywood, as police served a search warrant at the apartment.

Police have not released the suspect’s name. The suspect was one of several people detained for questioning after police served search warrants in the case, LAPD Detective Jose Carrillo said. Police said it was one of the two suspects have been sought in the case.

It is unclear whether the other detainees to potential witnesses or suspects in the March 31 beating Brian Stow left with brain damage, police Sgt. Kunch said.

Several search warrants were served in an apartment building, Kunch said, but he could not say how many people were arrested or whether they are male or female. Construction manager Maritza Camacho told the Los Angeles Times that a SWAT team descended on the

East Hollywood apartment with guns drawn.

Among the people left the building was a man with a baldhead and tattoos on his neck and arms, said Camacho, a description that seems to coincide with the vague sketches released by police of one of the two suspects. He added that there appears to be resisting arrest.

Police Chief Charlie Beck said recently that detectives are investigating about 500 leads in their search for the attackers.

Awards totaling more than 200,000 and have been offered for information leading to the arrest of suspects.

Stow dropped to the ground and kicked several times in the head during the attack.

He has suffered several strokes since the attack and spent nearly seven weeks in Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center before being transferred to San Francisco General Hospital on Monday after doctors at Los Angeles determined that his condition was sufficiently stable for the move.

Stow has undergone surgery to relieve swelling in his brain. Most of his time in hospital in Los Angeles was spent in a medically induced coma to prevent seizures.

San Francisco, hospital official’s say Stow remains in critical condition in a coma, but has opened my eyes.

Stow, 42, father of two, had Giants team when two men attacked him.

The two attackers repeatedly kicked and punched Stow while he was on the floor. Stow friends tried to help, and were also punched and kicked before the attackers fled in a car driven by a woman. Police said apparently was also a 10 year old in the car.
