Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has announced the arrest of three suspects in the assault case of Bryan Stow. The arrest of the suspects, two men and one woman, was announced at a televised news conference at 5PM.
Giovanni Ramirez, the first man arrested, is no longer a suspect in the case, according to Los Angeles Police Chief, Charlie Beck. “The initial evidence and identifications, which led to his arrest, have been refuted by an investigation that has involved dozens of detectives, working seven days a week over thousands of hours. They investigated more than 850 clues, and interviewed more than 650 people.”
The suspects in custody are Louie Sanchez – age 29, Marvin Norwood – age 30 and Dorene Sanchez – age 31, all from Rialto. The men, charged on multiple crimes including mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon, are being held on $500,000 bail. Charges against Dorene Sanchez are still pending but her bail was reported to be $50,000.
Dorene Sanchez has made bail, retained an attorney, and has been released from jail.
