Los Angeles police officials said they believe the two suspects in the Bryan Stow beating might have had altercations with additional fans at the Dodgers' March 31 home opener and are asking any other victims to come forward.

Detectives first came upon Louie Sanchez's and Marvin Norwood's names while reexamining more than 700 tips from the public. Among the tips were complaints about their unruly behavior inside Dodger Stadium.

Cellphone records and photographs place the two men at the game when Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan, was assaulted, police sources said.

The pair were so unruly that people sitting nearby in the stands behind third base later reported the men to police. As the game wound down, the men allegedly grew more hostile. Sanchez allegedly threw soda at a female Giants fan inside the stadium and pushed another fan as they walked out to the parking lot.

Then, authorities say, the men ran into Stow. The 42-year-old Santa Clara County paramedic was wearing Giants apparel and searching for a taxi with friends when Sanchez, 29, and Norwood, 30, allegedly beat him in an attack that left him with brain damage.

On Monday, Sanchez and Norwood appeared in court, where a judge ordered them to remain behind bars on $500,000 bail each. Both men are charged with assault and mayhem; Sanchez also is charged with battery on the female Giants fan and the unknown male fan.
