Sleeping 11-year-old raped in Brooklyn

An 18-year-old has been arrested in connection with the rape of an 11-year-old New York City girl in her own bedroom.

Julio Ayala of Brooklyn faces multiple felony charges in connection with the crime.  He was arrested Saturday after police released an image of the suspect.

Police say that he entered the second floor window of an apartment building at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday.  Police say he went up to a girl who was sleeping in her bed and raped her.  They say he then went back out through the window of the building at Flatbush Ave. and Winthrop St.

The girl then cried out for her parents, who called 911.

It was unclear if Ayala had a lawyer.
