Norteño street Gang fight leaves two beaten, bloody

02:10 | ,

Two reported members of a street gang sat on the sidewalk handcuffed, one with blood oozing out of gashes on the back of his head, the other's face cut up and with a possible broken nose.

As Corning police questioned the two men, Eric Sandoval, 23, and Gerardo Moreno, 22, both of Corning, around 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, they claimed they were victims of a man in a white Nissan who had yelled gang-slang at them and then jumped them, attacking them with a tire iron.

"We believe this to be a gang fight between members of the Soreño and Norteño street gangs," said Corning police Detective Mel Allison.

It appears the altercation may have started when gang members in a white Nissan 240 yelled at Sandoval and Moreno on Solano Street in front of the Napa Auto Parts store.

The two vehicles sped eastbound down Solano turning right onto Marguerite Avenue and then right onto Marin Avenue, where both vehicles stopped. According to a witness, she stepped out of her house when her dog started barking and saw a white car parked on the north side of the road and a blue car parked in the middle of the road. She saw men coming out of both vehicles and start attacking each other with unknown weapons.

"I called 911 and as soon as the police cars could be heard coming, the people fighting jumped back in the cars and drove away," the witness said.

It appears the white car sped away west on Marin and then north to Solano Street before police arrived.

Officers were able to stop the blue Honda on Marguerite Avenue at Walnut Street, and with guns drawn, commanded the occupants out of the vehicle, Cardenas said.

Sandoval and Moreno exited the car and where placed in handcuffs as police searched for possible weapons.

After questioning the two men, they were transported by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Red Bluff, where they were treated and released, police said.

It appears Wednesday's fight may have connections to a Soreno and Norteno gang fight that occurred on July 24, on the 800 block of Fairview Lane, police said.

Officers were called to that incident around 1:45 a.m. on a report of gunshots.

When they arrived they learned a white Nissan Maxima had pulled up to the residence where a party was taking place and a fight began in the driveway, police said.

Officers reported Andreas Rodriguez Ayala, 20, of Corning, said members of the Norteño street gang walked up and confronted him and his friends, and then attacked him.

At some point during the confrontation a gun was shot twice into the air, Allison said.

"We have strong leads in both gang fights and arrests are pending," Cardenas reported.
