SUN VALLEY – It wasn’t the tasty Egg McMuffins that two Vineland Boys gangsters were after yesterday morning at the local McDonald’s fast food restaurant. They had their eyes on the pair of $130 Nike Air Jordans worn by an unsuspecting man coming out of the restroom. The men beat the 26-year-old victim, knocked him down, pulled off the blue and white tennis shoes, and then went on a mini crime spree before police caught up with them and took them into custody, police said. Nobody was seriously injured. The drama began about 9:30 a.m. yesterday at the restaurant at Vineland Avenue and San Fernando Road. Carlos Silva, 20, and Edgar Lopez, 18, both documented members of the Vineland Boys gang, are accused of punching and kicking Tony Gudino as he came out of the McDonald’s restroom and stealing his shoes, police said. Gudino was treated at a local hospital for bruises on his face and head and released. After the attack the men then went to Sun Valley Park nearby, took a purse off a park bench, rifled through it and then when the owner’s boyfriend grabbed it back, took a hammer out of a man’s shopping cart and threatened him with it.last_img
