The "Los Angeles Police Department still needs public assistance in their search for the two suspects who taunted and severely assaulted Brian," Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich said.

The Dodgers have already pledged a $125,000 reward; the L.A. City Council, $50,000; the San Francisco Giants, $10,000; American Medical Response, $5,000; and Los Angeles radio personality Tom Leykis, $50,000.

Stow, 42, a Santa Clara County paramedic, was brutally beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot March 31, and had been placed in a medically induced coma after he suffered brain damage.

Last month, Stow's condition was upgraded from critical to serious, and Stow was opening his eyes and showed some movement in one arm.

Giovanni Ramirez, 31, whom police have identified as the primary suspect in the assault, has not been charged by prosecutors in the attack. The suspect was returned to state prison last month on an unrelated parole violation.
