The men who reportedly attacked teenage rap star YBN Almighty Jay, have been arrested on an unrelated attempted murder charge.

YBN Almighty Jay was viciously beaten by a group of men, his Rap-A-Lot chain was stolen and he needed 300 stitches in his face after being cut with a broken Hennesy bottle.

On Thursday, the United States Attorney's Office announced that five members of a New York street gang called 'Jack Boyz 'were arrested on federal attempted murder and firearms charges.

Zae Numbafive (born Nazae Blanche) and three other Jack Boyz members are facing a charge of attempted murder in the aid of racketeering and firearm charges in connection with the shooting of an off-duty NYPD officer.
