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!!

      semper fudge, buddy.

      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.

    3. JOSE says:

      “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.. =)

      1. will ashton says:

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

  4. Whites says:

    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.

  5. Shiggity says:

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

  6. Whites says:

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

  7. geeM says:

    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.

  8. Anthony says:

    MS13 is not a Mexican gang, it’s Salvadorian

    1. g says:

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

  9. JJ says:

    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…

    1. Karen says:

      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.

  10. JJ says:

    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…

    1. "dancing on white ppls graves" says:

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

      1. Country Rocker says:

        Thats coming from an ignorant latino. Get a life loser

    2. JM says:

      Sad to say you are more ignorant than he is.

  11. CJ says:

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

  12. satnot says:

    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.

  13. "dancing on white ppls graves" says:

    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)….

  14. Tomv1 says:

    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!

    1. Laura says:

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

  15. Mary says:

    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.

  16. satnot says:

    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.

  17. Chester says:

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

  18. Lisa says:

    What is the point of this stupid comment?

  19. Karen says:

    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.

    1. lala63 says:

      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.

  20. mamacat says:

    Stupid is as Stupid does FOLKS

  21. Karen says:

    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.

  22. Al-CIAda says:

    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.

  23. Country Rocker says:

    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.

    1. just saying says:

      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.

      1. IOI says:

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

    2. aurelia says:

      Ve a CHINGAR tu madre…PUTO !!

      1. Karen says:

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

    3. Roland says:

      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

  24. Oxymoron says:

    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.

    1. CJ says:

      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??

  25. Oxymoron says:

    So why dont you take your stupid brown ars back to Tijuana if you dont like it. by the way are you still coming to mow my lawns on saturday?

    1. JM says:

      Ars? Why dont’ you go back to England you d..b f..k

  26. Profiling is a terrorism says:

    Geovanni Ramirez should file a lawsuit against the District attorney and have compensation for his troubles. $1,000,000 minimum…he is a victim of domestic terrorism by the LAPD

    1. HA HA HA says:

      LMAO!! Doubt in a million years that would happen…

    2. g says:

      ya and guess who has to pay for it. taxes payers. you probably dont work so it wouldnt be your money.

    3. Country Rocker says:

      Hey Ramirez was in violation of Parole. He will stay in Jail. One more criminal off the street

    4. Country Rocker says:

      Arresting officers and District attorneys are gonna have beers with their buddies, take boats to the river, seduce their wives, and never be sued. Thats a guarentee. Ramirez is a criminal, and is violation of parole. Enjoy your stay in Jail dude!

    5. Lisa says:

      I think she should kiss Charlie Beck’s butt for even wasting space on this planet. She raised a criminal and defends him.

  27. lala63 says:

    I meant so say “they may have NOT gotten the main dude” in that last post.

  28. mexicanman says:

    To all of you going back and forth with hate and discontent! I do agree with Karen, the only way to become a parole is by being a criminal, but if he did his time and was released he does deserve a chance to redeem himself. In general do they all succeed in redeeming themselves? NO!!!! Not of any race creed or color!! In this guy’s case, did he violate his parole? YES!! Well there you go he is a Criminal!!! Now On the Tattoo issue Lots of people have and like tattoos, Civilians as well as military, some like them a lot and others have a few that doesn’t make you a Criminal! In my opinion judge by their actions not by the fact that they have tattoo’s or the color of someones skin!!! The justice system isnt perfect but its what we have so lets work with it not against it!!!

  29. Country Rocker says:

    So what. It dosent change a thing. Just go to youtube and type in fights at dodger stadium and everyone of them involves hispanics.
    Also, Rose Bowl tailgate party stabbing= mexican suspects.

  30. Country Rocker says:

    Type in “Dodger Stadium Fights” on you tube and you will see videos with 100 percent mexicans involved.

  31. igor doublebubblevich says:

    6ft4, 250 pounds, marvin Norwood, beating a man 12 years older half his size and having his thug friend helping him, he is a coward, wimp, punk disgrace to the white race.
