LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles police chief says a tip from a parole officer led to the arrest of one of the suspects in the attack on a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium after the rival teams' season opener.

At an afternoon news conference at the stadium, Chief Charlie Beck said the man detained early Sunday is believed to be the "main aggressor" in the March 31 beating that left Bryan Stow with brain damage.

An emotional Beck hailed the work of 20 full-time detectives who he said have pursued 630 leads in the case so far.

The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, was among several people detained for questioning after police served search warrants.

Police say he was one of two main suspects that have been sought in the case.
