LOS ANGELES

New police sketches were released Thursday of two men suspected of severely beating a Giants fan in the Dodger Stadium parking lot on opening day.

CALLING FOUL

Should Santana's no-no have an asterisk? Watch the play and decide.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck also provided a fuller description of the men who allegedly attacked 42-year-old paramedic Bryan Stow two weeks ago, leaving him in a medically induced coma.

A new wanted poster describes the first attacker as a stocky male Latino with a shaved head, mustache and goatee and possibly neck tattoos, the Los Angeles Times reported. He is described as between 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-10 and weighing about 170 pounds.

The second suspect is a Latino or white male, 6-foot-1 with short hair and hazel eyes and possibly tattoos on his shoulder.

Witnesses said a young woman and a boy who appeared to be about 10 were with the assailants.

A $150,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.

The renewed effort to track down Stow's attackers came as police and the Dodgers stepped up security for Thursday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Beck said the large LAPD presence at the game was aimed at convincing fans that the stadium was safe.

"This is about a crisis of confidence," he said. "Your perception of crime is as important as the reality."

Earlier, Giants ace Tim Lincecum announced Thursday that he would donate $25,000 to the fund set up for Stow.

"I decided to contribute $25,000 to the Bryan Stow Fund to benefit the 42-year old Giants fan who was critically injured in an attack after the Giants-Dodgers game on March 31," Lincecum wrote on Facebook.

"This was a senseless act of violence and I wanted to help out Mr. Stow and his family. I encourage Giants fans to support Mr. Stow in a positive way and hope there are not any more unfortunate acts between fans in this great rivalry."
