Two new suspects in the beating of Bay Area man Bryan Stow were in Los Angeles court this morning and were scheduled to be arraigned, but the arraignment has been postponed until August, a district attorney spokesman said.
Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, were arrested in San Bernadino County Thursday, along with Doreen Sanchez, 31. The men, both of Rialto, were charged with one count of mayhem and assault in connection with the March 31 Dodger Stadium parking lot beating that left Stow comatose for weeks after a Giants-versus-Dodgers baseball game.
Doreen Sanchez has not been charged.
The two men appeared today at Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Matt Krasnowski said.
At the request of both men’s attorneys, the arraignment has been postponed until Aug. 10 at 8:30 a.m., district attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robinson said.
The two men are being held at a Los Angeles County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail, Krasnowski said.
Louie Sanchez was also charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery stemming from a separate incident on March 31, according to the district attorney’s office.
A criminal complaint details injuries Stow suffered during the attack including slits to his nose, ear and lip, along with cuts to his tongue and injury to one of his eyes.
Stow, a 42-year-old Santa Cruz father of two who worked as a paramedic in Santa Clara County, was treated for many weeks after the attack at a Los Angeles hospital until he was stable enough to be transferred to San Francisco General Hospital, where he has been undergoing treatment since mid-May. In June, Stow’s doctors upgraded his condition from critical to serious.
According to his family’s website, Stow has been more alert after complications last week from bone flap surgery the previous week.
Until last week’s arrest, the primary suspect in the beating had been Giovanni Ramirez, 31, of Los Angeles. In late June he had his parole revoked in an unrelated offense and will spend the next 10 months in jail. Police said Ramirez is no longer a suspect in the attack.
