Officials Believe 2 Stow Beating Suspects Likely Attacked Other Giants Fans

LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — A law enforcement official says police suspect the two men charged in the beating of a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium also assaulted at least three other Giants fans on opening day.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is ongoing, told The Associated Press on Monday that detectives think three other men in Giants shirts were approached by 29-year-old Louie Sanchez and 30-year-old Marvin Norwood.

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports.

Aside from the near-fatal attack on Bryan Stow, Sanchez is also charged with assaulting one other unnamed person. The official says he also is suspected of attacking two others who have not been found.

Sanchez is also charged with misdemeanor battery on a woman. The official says Sanchez threw something at her in the stands.

Sanchez’s attorney, Gilbert Quinones, said his client doesn’t fit the profile of someone who would carry out the attack on Stow. “He was at the game, but wasn’t involved in the attack from what I know,” Gilbert said.

A public defender for Norwood attempted to get his client’s bail reduced, claiming Norwood had a stable home and job and had never been to prison. The judge denied the request, saying that Norwood was a “danger to the community.”

Arraignment for the two suspects has been postponed until August 10.

    “Sanchez’s attorney, Gilbert Quinones, said his client doesn’t fit the profile of someone who would carry out the attack on Stow. “He was at the game, but wasn’t involved in the attack from what I know,” Gilbert said.

    When people lie, they instinctively but subconciously always qualify it with phrases like “To the best of my knowledge” or “as far as I know” or “from what I know” – ESPECIALLY professionals like attorneys, insurance agents, and those in finance/stock brokers.

    I knew from the VERY BEGINNING Ramirez was not the guy; right up front his story inidcated LAPD was searching the wrong hole. I posted here saying the same – THE DAY he was arrested. There were too many specific aspects that early-on showed he was nowhere near the Stadium that day. There was a HUGE confidence by his lawyers and everyone else bluntly stating “No, and we can prove it” rather than “from what we know”.

    These are the guys, plain and simple. Their lackluster attorney just gave them away.

    Just a snaky lawyer making his media deposit into the (un)reasonable doubt bank. Maybe if he he says it ten times, in four different ways, it will stick in people’s heads. And the he can try to get a “Florida” jury pool.
