Court Appearance for Bryan Stow Assault Suspects

Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez were ordered earlier this month to stand trial for the assault at Dodger Stadium



    A 911 call played in court Wednesday, June 6, 2012, described the condition of Bryan Stow after he was beaten at Dodger Stadium in 2011. Suspects Marvin Norwood and Louis Sanchez, pictured with attorneys, are in preliminary hearings to determine if there is enough evidence to try them for the beating.

    Two men accused in the assault on a San Francisco Giants fan during the 2011 opening day game at Dodger Stadium appeared Friday in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom for a pre-trial proceeding.

    Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norward are charged in the attack on Bryan Stow in a Dodger Stadium parking lot. They pleaded not guilty at Friday's arraignment.

    Their next court date was scheduled for July 24.

    The two suspects were ordered earlier this month to stand trial. Sanchez, 30, and Norwood, 31, were arrested last July. They are accused of mayhem and assault and battery in the attack on Stow, a paramedic from Northern California who attended last season's opening day game with friends.

    Stow suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled.

    Sanchez and Norwood will both face three felony counts: for mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, and battery with serious bodily injury. Sanchez will also face allegations that he inflicted great bodily injury on Stow in the assault and battery counts; the judge decided Norwood will not face those allegations.

    Sanchez will further face two misdemeanor counts -- one for battery related to a run-in with a female Giants fan, and one for assault on an unidentified young man at whom Sanchez allegedly swung a fist.
