Louie Alex Sanchez & Marvin Eugene Norwood, Two News Suspects Arrested in Beating of SF Giant Fan Bryan Stow
Police have arrested two new suspects in the Bryan Stow beating …
Two new suspects have been charged in the brutal beating of San Francisco Giant fan Bryan Stow. The attack too place on Opening Day 2011 at Dodger Stadium. According to accounts, one of the suspects has also been charged with attacking two other San Francisco fans. The names of the two new suspects arrested are 29 yer old Louie Alex Sanchez and 30 year old Marvin Eugene Norwood.
Previously, Giovanni Ramirez was arrested in the attack; however, according to the LA Times, the investigation took a turn when a child witness provided authorities with more details about the attack and the time-line unraveled, which essentially cleared Ramierez. It is sad that police first arrested the wrong individual; however, kudos to them for not locking themselves into their first arrest and in the end, making the correct arrests.
Instead, Beck said, it was Louie Alex Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Eugene Norwood, 30, who punched Stow in the back of the head as the crowd let out at Dodger Stadium on March 31, knocked him to the ground, and beat and kicked him before jumping into a car that was driven away by a woman.
“Our goal is to find justice for Bryan Stow,” Beck said during a news conference at Los Angeles police headquarters. Sanchez and Norwood live just houses apart from each other in Rialto (San Bernardino County), and the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office charged the friends with mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and battery, all felonies.
Sanchez was also charged with misdemeanor battery stemming from an attack on two unnamed Giants fans at Dodger Stadium that same night. The men are being held on $500,000 bail each and are expected to be arraigned in Los Angeles court on Monday morning.
Here comes the shocker, both suspects have a criminal past, although their neighbors might want to rethink describing these two thugs as friendly and loving dads. Interestingly enough, one of Norwood’s cousins stated on the KFI-AM Jon and Ken show, “I’m not surprised in the least bit,” said Humphries, referring to the arrest. “He’s the kind of person that’s peed off at the whole world for absolutely nothing.”
Court records show Norwood was sentenced in 2006 to three years’ probation and served 118 days in jail after pleading guilty to one felony count of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.
In 2003, Louie Sanchez pleaded guilty to one felony count of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant, and the following year he pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor count of carrying a loaded firearm in a public place.
Despite those run-ins with the law, neighbors described the men as friendly, baseball-loving fathers.
Bryan Stow is still battling to recover from the traumatic brain injury he received from the brual beating on Opening Day at Dodger Stadium.
According to a post on the family’s website, doctors had to do the surgery Monday morning after fluid built up in Stow’s head and prompted a 30-second seizure. Such seizures can cause further brain damage.
