MS-13 allegedly used a 13-year-old girl to lure murder victim to Queens bird sanctuary


The man found dead and half-naked in a Queens bird sanctuary was lured there with promises of sex — and then slaughtered by members of the vicious MS-13 gang, according to law enforcement sources.

Ian Cruz, 23, of Far Rockaway, was discovered in Bayswater Point State Park last Friday.

Police have arrested four people in the gruesome killing, including an unidentified 13-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy.

Sources said the teenage girl messaged Cruz online and got him to come meet her for a tryst in the woods sometime between Dec. 15 and 16. Instead, a group of four gangbangers — the girl included — pumped four rounds of .22-caliber ammunition into his head.

Investigators believe the foursome used the same femme fatale to ensnare and kill 17-year-old Harold Sermeno — also of Far Rockaway — who was found fatally shot outside the Five Towns Community Center on Tuesday, sources said.

Police believe both men were mistaken for rival gang members, but it is unclear whether they knew the girl was 13, sources said.

Police arrested Yonathan Sanchez, 22, Carlos Guerro, 18, and the two teens on Saturday, charging them with murder and weapons possession.
