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.
