A woman was knocked unconscious and hospitalized after being punched in what's being described as a fight between A's and Giants fans outside of AT&T Park yesterday afternoon. To California and America: please cut this shit out.
The incident went down at Second and King streets, just outside of the stadium, after Oakland's 6-1 win over their cross-Bay rivals. The 30-year-old woman, who according to police was wearing an A's cap, was reportedly attempting to break up a fight between her boyfriend and two other men when she was punched by one of the suspects. She struck her head on the sidewalk, and was taken to the hospital where she is reportedly being treated for serious injuries.
According to witnesses the two suspects, described as a black male age 30 to 35, and a Latino male of approximately the same age, fled the scene in a gold Toyota Tundra. Police are seeking information, and tips can be left anonymously by calling 415-575-4444.
This incident came just a day after Bryan Stow was awarded $18 million in a lawsuit, including $4.5 million from the Dodgers. Stow, a Giants fan, was assaulted and left brain damaged by two men in the parking lot of Dodgers Stadium in 2011.
Last September, a 24-year-old Dodgers fan was stabbed to death after a Giants-Dodgers game in a street brawl sparked by the rivalry. Prosecutors declined to file charges, hinting that they believed the stabbing was self-defense.
