SAN FRANCISCO — Police have arrested two people in the fatal stabbing of a Dodgers fan during a fight near San Francisco’s AT&T Park after the Giants’ 6-4 win over the Dodgers, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr said Thursday.
Suhr did not provide additional details about the arrests. He told the San Francisco Chronicle earlier that the victim of the Wednesday night attack was a Dodgers fan and was wearing Dodgers gear.
The Medical Examiner’s office has identified the victim as Jonathan Denver, 24. Cameron Mullins, an investigator with the office, said authorities were still trying to determine the city where Denver lived.
It was not clear whether the victim’s gear played a role in the attack. The Giants and Dodgers are longtime division rivals. The Giants are the defending World Series champions, but this year, the Dodgers won the division while the Giants were set to miss the playoffs.
Police have released few additional details about the stabbing other than to say it occurred shortly after 11:30 p.m. during a confrontation between two groups of men.
Giants’ spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said she did not have more information about the incident but wanted to emphasize that the stabbing took place several blocks away from the stadium.
