                            'Her brother was sleeping in the room': Horrific details emerge in the rape of 11-year-old girl by alleged MS-13 gang member

The suspected MS-13 gang member, 18-year-old Julio Cesar Ayala, who was charged with raping an 11-year-old-girl in her bed in Brooklyn reportedly attacked her when the victim's brother was in the bunk bed below her, prosecutors said on Sunday.

Prosecutors, during his arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court, also said that Ayala entered the girl's bedroom in Prospect Lefferts Gardens by pushing aside an air conditioner and sliding through the second-floor window on Wednesday. 

According to the officials, the suspect first switched on the lights in the room and then turned them off and started shuffling things around on top of a dresser. Ayala, allegedly, then climbed into the top bunk of the bed where the girl was sleeping and attacked her. He raped the minor while her brother was laying in the bunk below, authorities said, according to the New York Post

 



 

The officials added that the preteen then screamed which led her parents to run into the room. However, Ayala had fled the apartment by the time, leaving his Chicago Bulls cap on the dresser.

Ayala then changed his shirt outside the building to throw off the detectives, however, the incident was caught on a surveillance camera footage in the area. The prosecutors added that cops also found another footage from before the incident, which showed the suspect wearing the Bulls cap,  the officials then used the footage to apprehend him eventually.

 



 

The Post reported that Ayala, an El Salvadoran, admitted to the allegations, saying: "Yes, I have never done anything like this before.” Ayala, whose immigration status is not yet clear, has no criminal record in the city and has been identified as a suspected member of the vicious MS-13 gang by police sources. 

Ayala's legal aid lawyer said that he moved to Brooklyn a few months ago from Virginia to work full-time at his uncle's air-conditioning business. 

Ayala is facing multiple charges, including rape, burglary, and possession of a forged instrument,  and is being held on $500,000 bail.
