Authorities arrested two self-proclaimed MS-13 gang members who reportedly robbed a cab driver at gunpoint in New York.

After the armed robbery of a cab driver in Long Island, New York, officers arrested 27-year-old Jeremy Jones and 20-year-old Jose Molina at a train station, ABC7 reported.

Investigators said the two suspects got into a cab near the Babylon Long Island Rail station. After requesting to be taken to the Farmingdale train station, the gang members reportedly pulled out a gun and demanded cash and jewelry from the driver.
