LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The two men now named as prime suspects in the beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow are scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
CBS2 and KCAL9 has obtained the first photos of the suspects, now identified as 29-year-old Louie Sanchez and 30-year-old Marvin Norwood, from earlier arrests.
Both men are expected to be officially charged with mayhem, assault and battery in the March 31 attack on the 42-year-old paramedic and father of two, according to the District Attorney’s Office. They are being held in lieu of 500,000 bail.
Sanchez also faces two misdemeanor counts of battery stemming from another alleged run-in that same day. If convicted, Sanchez could get a maximum of nine years in prison, while Norwood faces up to eight years behind bars, according to prosecutors. The two are neighbors in Rialto.

A third person, identified as 31-year-old Dorene Virginia Sanchez, is believed to have been the getaway driver in the crime, according to police. She was arrested but released Friday. Sanchez is due in court Aug. 19, according to Los Angeles County jail records.
Meantime, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said the department is examining their operations following the initial arrest of Giovanni Ramirez, who has since been exonerated.
“We will follow up of course to make sure all the information is valid and that they acted in good faith,” he said. “You have to remember that the information that exonerated Giovanni Ramirez came as we made the arrests of these other individuals.”
