A purported member of the MS-13 gang broke into the bedroom of a sleeping 11-year-old Brooklyn girl and raped her in her bed, cops said Saturday as the suspect was taken into custody.
The horrific crime happened at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, officials said.
The suspect — identified by police sources as El Salvadoran immigrant Julio Cesar Ayala, 18, who lives nearby — had allegedly climbed onto the roof of the girl’s apartment building.
He then somehow shoved aside the girl’s window air conditioner on the second floor and crawled inside through the opening, police sources said.
The fiend raped the girl in her bed, officials said.
But he dashed back out the window as she screamed to alert her mother, who rushed to her aid, sources said.
The mother called 911 but did not catch sight of the attacker, the sources said.
By luck, though, police were able to grab video-surveillance images of the suspect.
