Two Philadelphia men have been charged with pistol-whipping a Cinnaminson, N.J., man after he won $2,000 at the Sugar House Casino on Oct. 16.

Cinnaminson police said today that Christopher Featherstone, 22, David Riley, 20, and a third man followed the 26-year-old victim from the casino and attacked him when he got out of a cab about a block from his home. The victim managed to fight off the two attackers, who struck him in the head with a handgun.

Police said Featherstone, of Mole Street near Wingohocking, and Riley, of Opal Street near Snyder Avenue, fled back to Philly. Both were later taken into custody by Philadelphia police on unrelated criminal charges. They will be extradited to Cinnaminson, where they will face charges that include aggravated assault, possession of a handgun and related offenses. Their bail has been set at $150,000.
