Suspect arrested in assault on couple after Elton John’s Dodger Stadium concert
Police arrested a suspect in a home-invasion assault on a couple attending a Dodgers game Sunday night in Los Angeles, Los Angeles police said.
Officers were called to the intersection of Bel-Air and Norma St., near the corner of Hollywood and Vine, at 9:19 p.m. after a man broke out a window and fired two shots inside a vehicle, causing a woman in the car to be shot in the arm, authorities said.
A 21-year-old man was taken into custody on suspicion of attempted murder, and a woman, 27, was treated for a minor physical injury, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The man is also being held in lieu of $7 million bail. The couple is not being identified because they were not charged.
A crowd of about 10,000 people, most of them Dodgers fans, watched the L.A. Dodgers lose to the Pittsburgh Pirates, 9-2, at Dodger Stadium Sunday night.
The suspect is from Canada, police said.
The home invasion was connected to an incident early Sunday morning that happened in Van Nuys, police said. Officers from the LAPD’s Van Nuys division were dispatched to 7200 Monterey St., near the intersection of Norma and Los Angeles streets, following reports of a woman being attacked by a man.
Officers arrived and made contact with the suspect at the scene but he fled through the neighborhood and officers followed him and apprehended him.
The incident is under investigation, police said.
The Dodgers lost, 7-3, to the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series in their first home playoff game since winning the World Series in 2007.
The Dodgers have won six World Series titles, including the last four, but they haven’t played at a World Series game since 1988
