Three men sought in postgame attack in Angel Stadium parking lot

Anaheim police are looking for three suspects in the brutal beating of a 43-year-old man Friday night in an Angel Stadium parking lot.

The assault occurred after the Angels’ playoff game against the Kansas City Royals, but did not appear to be related to team rivalries, said Anaheim police Lt. Rovert Dunn. The victim, whose name has not been released, was walking to his car when he was attacked “seemingly for no reason,” Dunn said.

“We don’t have any information that it was something that began inside and spilled outside,” Dunn said.

A police officer who was part of the parking lot security detail was alerted by a witness to the attack and found the man unconscious at about 10:30 p.m., Dunn said.

Paramedics rushed the man to a hospital. Dunn said when he last checked late Saturday night the victim was listed in critical condition.

No arrests have been made. Police have only sketchy descriptions of the three male suspects.

“Right now, we are left wondering why these individuals attacked this victim,” he said.

Dunn said police and the team are reassessing security needs in light of the attack.
