Federal law enforcement officials revealed that they hunted down two purported members of the 18th Street Gang who were associated with a horrific mutilation recorded on video.

Brooklyn federal prosecutors indicated that the associates of the reputed 18th Street Gang, identified as Cristian Perez and Sergio Gerardo Herrera-Hidalgo, were part of a crew that carved up another gang member who they believed cooperated with police.

The 18th Street Gang is an arch-rival of the infamous MS-13 gang.

Court documents cited by the New York Daily News indicated that Herrera-Hildalgo confessed to being one of the stabbers in a three-minute video recording the last moments of a moaning man being slashed to death in the town of Saugerties, in upstate New York, back in October.

“He’s f—-d now,” one unidentified man said in the footage.

“In a big way, son of a b—h. For being a rat,” another unnamed individual added.

The man’s remains were found in a shallow grave in Turkey Point State forest in January.

Federal officials said they busted Herrera-Hidalgo and Perez by tracking phone records and locations.

On Thursday, the men were arraigned and remanded in Brooklyn Federal Court.
