LOS ANGELES - It could take several more days before Los Angeles police present evidence to prosecutors against the primary suspect in the March 31 beating of a Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium, Police Chief Charlie Beck said Thursday.

"I have a very difficult case here," Beck said at a news conference, five days after officers arrested Giovanni Ramirez, 31, during a raid on an East Hollywood apartment. "It was seven weeks before we made that arrest, and we still have a lot to do. I can't jeopardize the case by giving out any more information."
