He remains hospitalized at San Francisco General Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery Monday after suffering a seizure resulting from a build-up of fluid in his head. According to his family, he showed positive signs of improvement today, opening his eyes on command and mouthing his last name.

Police said Stow was attacked solely because he was wearing Giants paraphernalia while his attackers and the female getaway driver were wearing Dodgers gear.

The suspects arrested on Thursday live in the same Rialto neighborhood, The Times reported.

Dorene Sanchez was taken into custody at the same Rialto home that Louie Sanchez told authorities was his residence. She was released after posting bail.

Norwood and Dorene Sanchez live in a home on a quiet Rialto cul-de-sac.

Louie Sanchez lives six houses down with his parents, neighbors told The Times.

Police on Thursday searched the homes and towed a truck that neighbors said belonged to Norwood, the paper reported.

A neighbor told The Times Norwood and Dorene Sanchez live with three children, including a toddler and two older children between 9 and 11 years old. Louie Sanchez's son is about 9 or 10 and visits his father on weekends, according to a neighbor.

Norwood, according to the arrest records, stands 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds, roughly matching the description witnesses gave police of one of the attackers. Louie Sanchez was listed as 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds, which also closely matches a description given by witnesses.

Fontana police described Louie Sanchez as having neck tattoos when he was arrested for drunken driving in 2005, according to court records cited by The Times. The LAPD has described one of the assailants in the Stow attack as having possible tattoos on his neck.

Witnesses to the Dodger Stadium beating reported seeing a child about 10 years old in the car in which the two assailants fled after the attack. A law enforcement source told The Times that a child provided authorities with information about the crime.
