A blood-stained jersey dropped off at a cleaning service may be linked to the near-deadly beating of San Francisco Giants fan
Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day.
The Los Angeles Police Department could not confirm the report, said Officer Rosario Herrera. However, NBC4 reported Friday that workers alerted authorities after the jersey was dropped off at a cleaning service.
Authorities submitted the garment for DNA analysis and the results came back as a match to Stow, NBC4 reported.
It was unknown what type of jersey was tested. Police initially said the first suspect was described as wearing a white Dodger jersey at the time of the attack.
Giovanni Ramirez, 31, is the only person to be arrested in connection with the attack, but has not been charged. He remains jailed on a parole hold.
NBC4 reported a source within the police department said the jersey does not belong to Ramirez, but declined to disclose the owner.
Ramirez has claimed he was with his 10-year-old daughter when the beating occurred.
The two suspects in the beating were described as being between 18 and 25 years of age and they had shaved heads, thin mustaches, and one also had a small goatee. The second suspect had numerous tattoos on his neck.
A woman described by police as wearing an Andre Ethier Dodgers jersey drove a car that picked up the two suspects.
Stow, a 42-year-old paramedic from Northern California, was attacked in a parking lot after the game. Police said Stow was targeted solely because he was wearing Giants apparel.
