Four Nassau police officers are being celebrated Monday after a harrowing incident involving alleged MS-13 gang members.
The officers apparently spotted a suspicious vehicle last month during an investigation at the Edgewood Motel in Westbury.
When they stopped the vehicle, police say they noticed a passenger in trouble. One of the suspects fled with a machete, they say.
The other three men inside the car were MS-13 members holding the other passenger against his will after beating and robbing him, according to police. Authorities believe they were on their way to kill the man.
