3 New Suspects Arrested In Bryan Stow Beating

LAPD To Hold 5PM News Conference

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Three new suspects have been arrested in connection with the brutal beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow.

Giovanni Ramirez, the man originally arrested in connection with the March 31 attack at Dodger Stadium, may soon be exonerated.

CBS 2 has confirmed that Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, are in custody in connection with the case. Both suspects are being held on $500,000 bail, according to The Los Angeles Times.

A third suspect, Dorene Sanchez, was also arrested on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact, CBS 2 confirmed. She was released Friday morning after posting $50,000 bail, The Times reported.

Sources tell us that detectives now have physical evidence linking the two men to the beating. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck will hold a 5 p.m. news conference to release more details regarding the arrests and the Stow beating.

In May, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck maintained Ramirez was responsible for the opening day beating at Dodger Stadium.

Ramirez was arrested on a parole violation, but the case began to crumble after his attorney claimed there was no other evidence or eyewitness testimony.

His defense argued that multiple witnesses, including his own daughter, could prove he was not at Dodger Stadium the night of the attack.

Stow remains hospitalized in San Francisco, where he just said his last name and gave a thumbs up doctors and nurses. His family learned of the latest developments from CBS2.

“We’re really just waiting kind of like everybody else,” John Stow said. ”We know they have a big job to do ahead of them. We’re putting all our faith in the LAPD right now.”

The two key witnesses who played a big role in the initial investigation were called back to the LAPD. The Fullerton couple told investigators that they saw the beating at Dodger Stadium on opening night.

They say they stood next to Stow and believed they identified the right man, Giovanni Ramirez, after looking at a series of police lineups and photographs.

The say they were shocked that they identified the wrong man.

The district attorney reportedly plans to file charges against the two new suspects Friday.

Ramirez is still being held at a facility in San Diego. His attorneys will hold a 1 p.m. news conference, where we will learn more about their plans to file a lawsuit against the LAPD.

    Why was LAPD so quick to put Giovanni’s name in the news, but they won’t give us the name of the 2 people who they arrested for the crime? They were SO SURE that Giovanni did it, but haven’t apologized for naming him (and continue to put his name out there).

    This post is a fine example that CBS looks the other way concerning reverse racism. Say a little tiny thing about Latinos, the moderators rip it down while these posts concerning white folks will continue.
    Who is more violent, Latinos or Whites? Well, you do not need to go to the Middle East to get decapitated, just take a day trip to Mexico.
    In addition, speak of family structure, remember when Jose Raul Lemos used his daughter as a HUMAN SHIELD as he was involved in a gun fight with officers? Seems kind of violent!!

    • JOSE

      “WHO is more violent, Latinos or Whites?” What a stupid question. Tell me, who’s nicer Blacks or Asians?
      Race has nothing to do with the natural behavior of people. Behavior is shaped by a variety external of factors including socio-economic status, education, religion, ect. Take a basic course in Soc 1 buddy.. =)

      • will ashton

        Soc 1, want help him. He’s an idiot.

    • tom s.

      You are not a marine or else you would “RESPECT” the law of the land !
      You don’t have a clue about what it takes to be “AMERICAN” !
      You are an illegal who breaks the law of the land every day just by being here and has no respect for american law or justice.

    • Jeezus

      semper fudge, buddy.

  • Whites

    Every Heard of the Oklahoma city Bombings or a little shoot-out in a Colorado High School. By the way if you and your family didn’t need drugs, the Mexican Mafia would not exsist.

  • Shiggity

    OKC, Mexicans killed that many people just this week. Thanks for the free entertainment.

  • Whites

    No Thank you Hitler. Hugh or pay attention to your kid so they wont shoot at people in the future.

  • geeM

    It does not matter if they were purple or martians. Most people, and the family want the 3 parties involved arested and prosecuted. Someone being a Giants fan, or any opposing team fan, should not subject them to assault in Chavez ravine.

  • Anthony

    MS13 is not a Mexican gang, it’s Salvadorian

    • g

      originaly it was a Salvadorian gang, but now they accet all races.

  • JJ

    One can only assume if they see a man with a shaved head, tattoo’s all over his neck, and wearing baggy clothes is up to no good. He’s obviously not going to a job interview…

    • Karen

      Excuse me but Ramirez IS A CRIMINAL. He is in jail on a PAROLE VIOLATION.

      You are not on parole UNLESS YOU ARE A CRIMINAL.

      That is why I think he’s a criminal.

      And to everyone, if you tattoo your whole body, you will die young. Your skin releases toxins but if that skin is full of tattoo ink, the skin ducts are blocked, the toxins stay in your body and eventually you die of toxicity.

  • JJ

    He’s obviously guilty of something or else he wouldn’t still be in jail. Keep him in there for another 6 months just for being an ignorant Mexican gang banger…

    • JM

      Sad to say you are more ignorant than he is.

    • "dancing on white ppls graves"

      And when ppl like him get out in 6 months, i hope they rob u at gunpoint for being an ignorant racist…

      • Country Rocker

        Thats coming from an ignorant latino. Get a life loser

  • CJ

    Guilty or NOT guilty G. Ramirez is TRASH and always will be!

    Wow one of the suspects (Marvin Norwood)! See who says whites and Hispanics can’t get along. We have trash in all races and cultures so all of you dummies get over the race cause atrocities will continue from all races and your comments are pointless.

  • "dancing on white ppls graves"

    Ever heard of the Rough Riders? The Nazis? The U.S. Army Cavalry? White people have just as much a bloody history as any other ethnic group (if not more)….

  • Tomv1

    Mexicans/Salvadorians/Guetemalens all the same thing anyway. Why u arguing. If it’s the color of my excrement, I don’t want it here!

    • Laura

      You are such and ignorant and racist person, so sad!!!

  • Mary

    I am thankful they found the right people and that the other Ramirez can be cleared of the charges. Unfortunately accidents do happen – accusing someone of something and then being wrong about it. There are so many “Criminals” in jail today that are in there who should not be in there. Thankfully in this situation the right people have been arrested and Ramirez can be cleared of the charges. We all have to admit – the photo did STRONGLY resemble Ramirez. But shortly after the story broke I began to think that the wrong guy was in jail. The police just seemed uneasy about the arrest after a couple of weeks into the story; however, they did not want to admit to it. Thankfully Ramirez was charged and arrested on gun possession charges so that those around him are safe but on the other hand, I am glad he will be cleared of the horrendous crime these three did.

  • satnot

    Wow really? See this what I mean by trash in all races and I’m Mexican/American but think your comments are as stupid as all others posted by idiots. I really doubt your a U.S. Marine cause this is not how a proud Mexican/American Marine would react to stupid comments Marines are smarter than that. I know cause coming from a long heritage of Mexicans/ Americans that have serve our country proudly since WW2 and currently in Afghanistan. So please keep your comments to yourself cause you do not represent any Mexican/American or Marine.

  • Chester

    I’m tired of this story. Lets talk about how hot Lindsay Lohan is.

  • Lisa

    What is the point of this stupid comment?

  • Karen

    The police have not said Ramirez is NOT involved. I’m hearing a lot of chatter but NOTHING from the police.

    Ramirez is in jail because he violated parole. He was on parole because is was/is a CRIMINAL.

    I really don’t care about criminals – at all.

    • lala63

      Exactly Karen! You hit the nail on the head. They may have gotten the main dude, but I’m sure that he is no boy scout! … he was on PAROLE. I’m sure he has had many run ins with law enforcement and will continue to in the future.

  • mamacat

    Stupid is as Stupid does FOLKS

  • Karen

    Isn’t Easy E dead? He WAS a member of NWA.

    I don’t think you are doing a good job of making a point with this video.

  • Al-CIAda

    It is funny how some people become really tough when they are in a group, or when they have been drinking, or when they are hiding behind a computer.

    Beck needs to go.

  • Country Rocker

    Nice job LAPD. Charges will be filed.

    As for Ramirez, he belongs in Jail anyway. So there.

    Unfortunately, latinos(mexicans) are continuing to commit the majority of the violent crimes in So Calif. If you do not believe, just read and watch news. Pay attention to suspects name and/or description.

    This is not Racial. Its fact.

    • just saying

      Yes its true because latinos outnumber all other ethnicities, but the news also picks and chooses its stories. When do we hear about all those white trailer trash meth labs in the valley getting busted? We don’t, only the locals know about that. We do usually see on TV the white pedophile at least once a month, but does that mean that their is only white pedophiles out there? Nope.

      You obviously are not from southern cal.

      • IOI

        If you are local then you would know all about latinos.

    • aurelia

      Ve a CHINGAR tu madre…PUTO !!

      • Karen

        Este es los estados unidos. Hablamos ingles acqui. Si usted quiere hablar espanol vaya a Mexico.

    • Roland

      You need to look up the real facts…60% of crimes in ca are commited by people with Anglo last names,but if you believe the tv news as fact then your a idiot anyway

  • Oxymoron

    Your as big a douch bag as Ramirez. Like he was some upstanding citizen on spring break from Yale. He deserves to spend his life in jail getting his rear end pounded daily by big bubba.

    • CJ

      Exactly! I never understood why people sit there and actually defend this guy. HELLO he is a CRIMINAL!! HE DID NOT GO TO JAIL BECAUSE OF THE STOW BEATING. What part of that don’t you guys understand??
