Authorities say they tracked down two gangbangers who were linked to a sickening mutilation caught on video.
Brooklyn federal prosecutors said reputed 18th Street Gang associates Cristian Perez and Sergio Gerardo Herrera-Hidalgo were part of a crew that carved up another gang member suspected of cooperating with authorities.
The 18th Street Gang is a rival of the notorious MS-13 gang.
Court papers said Herrera-Hildalgo admitted to being one of the stabbers in a three-minute cell phone video capturing the last moments of a moaning man being slashed to death in a forested swamp in Saugerties, N.Y., in October.
