A suspect in the March 31 beating of a San Francisco Giants fan has been taken into custody, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The newspaper reported a SWAT team apprehended the unnamed suspect at an East Hollywood apartment early Sunday morning. Police sources told the Times that the man taken into custody is one of two suspects in the attack.

Giants fan Bryan Stow was critically injured in an attack outside Dodger Stadium following the season opener. He suffered brain damage and remains in critical condition at a San Francisco hospital.

The Giants released a statement following the police action:

"We commend the Los Angeles Police Department for their hard work and we are confident that they will continue to dedicate themselves until all of those responsible for this senseless act of violence have been brought to justice," said the statement. "Our thoughts and prayers remain with Bryan Stow and his family and we thank the community for its tremendous support for the Stow family during this difficult time."

The Dodgers hired former Los Angeles police chief William J. Bratton as a security advisor following the incident.
