Miguel Angel Ayala-Rivera aka ‘Noctorno’, 24, is charged with first-degree assault
An MS-13 pimp who goes by the street name ‘Noctorno’ has been accused of ordering a baseball bat beating of a 15-year-old girl who had been forced into prostitution.
Illegal immigrant Miguel Angel ‘Noctorno’ Ayala-Rivera, 24, was charged with first-degree assault and a slew of other charges in Montgomery County, Maryland in connection with the beating.
Also charged in the savage beating were Yervin Josue Romero-Rivera, 21, who is also in the country illegally, and Ivan Alexis Pena-Rodriguez, 20.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Pena-Rodriguez was born in El Salvador, but were unable to comment further on his immigration status.
A source told police that ‘Noctorno’ was a high-ranking MS-13 leader who pimps out underage girls from a number of states, according to court documents obtained by WJLA.

On August 1, ‘Noctorno’ and his two henchmen allegedly dragged the teen prostitute into the backyard of an MS-13 hideout, a single-family home (pictured) in Kensington, Maryland
On August 1, ‘Noctorno’ and his two henchmen dragged the teen prostitute into the backyard of an MS-13 hideout, a single-family home in Kensington, Maryland, the source said.
The three thugs, plus another two men, took turns beating the helpless girl with a bat, raining down 28 blows on her body, the source told cops. Her injuries included an ‘indented’ buttocks, discolored arms and legs, and visible bleeding from the neck down.
A second source revealed that ‘Noctorno’ ordered the beating because the young teen was ‘not doing a good job as an MS-13 prostitute’.
Detectives tracked down the traumatized girl and spoke to her by phone, but she was too scared to reveal her location or admit to the brutal gang beating. She did reveal she knew the defendants and had been at the Kensington MS-13 hideout.
The investigation, which was sparked by a warrant being executed at the Kensington hideout and subsequent witness statements, led to charges being filed last month.

‘Noctorno’ and Romero-Rivera were already in jail, following a November bust in a string of armed robberies of check cashing businesses throughout the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC.
In each robbery, multiple suspects would storm a business, armed with handguns and often with their faces concealed, demanding cash.
After the November 3 stickup of a Cash Depot in Silver Spring, police chased a white van matching the description of the suspect vehicle in a high-speed pursuit down the Beltway.
One suspect was killed by a collision with a police car while fleeing on foot, and fourt others were taken into custody, including ‘Noctorno’ and Romero-Rivera.
Police found a number of guns stashed in the van.
The suspects were charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, and the use of a firearm during the commission of a violent felony in that case.
