Dodger Stadium beating suspects to be arraigned Monday

July 24, 2011 |  6:47 pm


The two new suspects in the Dodger Stadium beating of Bryan Stow will be arraigned Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, authorities said.

The two men from Rialto -- Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30 -- were charged with assault and mayhem Friday afternoon and held on $500,000 bail.

Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan and 42-year-old paramedic, was left with brain damage after the March 31 violence at Dodger Stadium.

Court records show that Sanchez and Norwood have a history of violent crimes.

Police had earlier arrested 31-year-old Giovanni Ramirez in connection with the beating. But at a news conference Friday afternoon, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Ramirez was not involved.

“In policing, it is just as important to exonerate the innocent as it is to implicate the guilty," Beck said.
