    Santa Cruz man attacked at Dodger Stadium remains in a coma


    Santa Cruz man assaulted at Dodger Stadium Thursday remained in a medically induced coma Sunday at a Los Angeles area hospital, a co-worker said.

    Bryan Stow, 42, was wearing Giants attire when he and two friends were heckled by several Dodgers fans while walking from the stadium to the parking lot after season opener between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco GiantsLos Angeles police said.

    Two men approached from behind and struck Stow, who fell to the pavement, police said. The assailants kicked him and then ran to a four-door sedan driven by a woman, police said. A boy also was in the car.

    Stow is a father of two who works as a paramedic for American Medical Response in Santa Clara County.

    His paramedic partner, Rebecca Mackowiak of San Jose, said she heard Sunday there had been no change in Stow’s condition.

    “”It’s a waiting game,”” she said. “”We have to wait until the swelling goes down in his brain. It looks like it will be a while until that happens.””

    Police released sketches of the suspects late Friday. They are described as two Latino men ages 18 to 25 years old. Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich has offered a$10,000 reward for information leading to their arrest.

    LAPD detective Jose Carrillo said investigators are still tracking down leads and have gotten some great help from witnesses.

    “”Unfortunately, it’s not like CSI, it takes time,”” he said.

    Stow’s work

    friends who were with him Thursday are at the hospital, along with his girlfriend and family, she said.

    His brother-in-law, Dave Collins of Scotts Valley, said Friday that Stow’s parents live in Capitola.
