Good Samaritans beat, tied up Ecuadorean migrant busted in rape of 13-year-old girl at Kissena Park

A 25-year-old Ecuadorean migrant wanted for the brutal sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl at a Queens park was nabbed after good Samaritans smacked him around and tied him up with a belt.

“I seen him a few times — he comes to this store to buy stuff,” Jeffrey Flores, who pounced on the creep. “I waited for him. I waited the whole day to see if he would come up. He came at night.

“He came in, we went to buy something,” Flores, 24, told The Post. “I saw what he was trying to do, he looked back at me. I waited for him to come out the store and dragged him to the floor. A couple people helped me.”

The accused molester has been the subject of a massive NYPD manhunt since he used a “machete-style knife” to force the young victim and her friend into a secluded area in Kissena Park on Thursday, then tied them up with shoelaces and sexually assaulted the girl.

The cowardly crime mobilized New Yorkers, with police releasing images of the suspect and posting wanted posters throughout Flushing.

Police sources said the suspect, who has not yet been officially charged or identified by cops, has been living at a shelter at Waldron and 108th Street.

The NYPD is scheduled to hold a press briefing on the arrest later on Tuesday morning.

“I got two little sisters and I’m about to have a daughter on the way,” Flores said of the park assault. “I don’t like that. That’s abusive. That’s not right.”

A 22-year-old pal had shown Flores a photo of the accused attacker from Instagram and was there to help take the creep down.

“We didn’t know he was a rapist,” the man, identified as Forge, said Tuesday. “He was walking around us like any other regular person. Once we started seeing the picture we waited for him and ended up catching him.”
