When J Prince sent out his IG warning people thought YBN’s attackers might get attack themselves.
Instead, it appears they will be going to jail for a long time.
The crew believed to be responsible for attacking and robbing YBN Almighty Jay and sending him to the hospital are in federal custody, but strangely … it has nothing to do with the rapper.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops have identified a street gang that includes Zae Numbafive as persons of interest in last weekend’s assault on Jay. We’re told the crew goes by the name “Jack Boyz.”
Zae and 3 other Jack Boyz members were arrested Wednesday in the Bronx as part of an unrelated federal investigation … which is even crazier. The men are facing a charge of attempted murder in the aid of racketeering — along with firearm charges — in connection with the shooting of an off-duty NYPD officer. Another member remains at large.
If convicted, they face up to life in prison.
As we reported … J Prince weighed in on the situation by calling out Zae and his crew and putting out an APB to his “mob ties” to nab them. Zae responded by posting a music vid that apparently flaunted Jay’s stolen bling.
Here are the videos of the attack, J Prince warning and the attackers’ response.
