Police sources have identified the suspect as Julio Cesar Ayala, 18, an El Salvadorian immigrant who lives in the neighborhood, the New York Post reported.
The alleged attack happened Wednesday, the report said.
On Saturday afternoon, officers of the New York Police Department’s Emergency Service Unit found Ayala hiding in an under-construction three-storey building, the Post reported.
His capture was reportedly met with applause and cheers of the spectators in the area.
His only form of identification, according to police sources, was made a Permanent Resident Card, also known as a green card.
He was charged with sexually motivated burglary and first-degree rape and was expected to be arraigned Sunday.
A police source told the newspaper that Ayala is suspected to be a member of the brutal MS-13 gang.
The suspect allegedly climbed on the roof of the victim’s home, climbed through a window and raped the girl in her bed, the source said.
But the suspect fled when the girl’s screams alerted her mother, the sources said. The mother did not catch a glimpse of the suspect, but 911.
Video-surveillance images, police turned up to a photo of the suspect, who had tried to disguise himself, the New York Daily News reported.
