    Mother of Stow Beating Suspect Speaks Out
    Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, were arrested Thursday on suspicion of beating Giant's fan Bryan Stowe, who has been hospitalized since the March 31 confrontation outside Dodger's Stadium. The new arrests have vindicated Giovanni Ramirez, previously held as the primary suspect in the case.

    Diana Page says, “It’s not something he would do to anyone.”

    Page cannot imagine her son Marvin Norwood is guilty of the assault and mayhem that police have charged him with.

    In an interview with the Los Angeles times she explains that she cannot imagine that her son is responsible for the beating that left Giants fan Brian Stow severely injured and brain damaged following a Dodgers game.

    Norwood and his friend Louie Sanchez are currently behind bars on $500,000 bail. Both have criminal histories, including convictions for domestic violence. But in her interview with the LA Times, Page insisted "He doesn't have anger management problems anymore.”

    While acknowledging his past legal troubles she says her son is currently a loving son and father. She talks about her son as a man who was building a better life for himself by finding a better paying job and preparing to get married.

    Norwood’s fiancée, Dorene Sanchez, was arrested but not charged in association with the Stow beating. It has been reported that she has implicated Norwood and her brother Louie Sanchez in the beating.

    Page said this entire experience has thrown her “for a loop.”
