It was a trap, executed imperfectly but with bloody results.

Prosecutors said in a recent court filing that four young men found slaughtered in a Long Island park last April were lured to the site by two female associates of the MS-13 street gang, which was hunting for rivals and perceived enemies.

Once there, the youths – some still in high school – were surrounded by more than a dozen gang members who attacked them with machetes, knives and wooden clubs ‘in a horrific frenzy of violence,’ according to the court papers obtained by Newsday.

A fifth young man who had accompanied the victims to the park ran for his life and escaped, the court memorandum said.

Prosecutors last week quietly charged four people in the killings but have revealed scant details about the case.

Three of the defendants were named in court papers unsealed Monday as Alexis Hernandez, Santis Leonel Ortiz-Flores and Omar Antonio Villalta. A fourth defendant’s identity was blacked out. The U.S. Attorney’s office would not say whether that person was in custody or still at large.

The April massacre in Central Islip was part of a string of Long Island killings blamed on MS-13, a deadly gang with origins in Central America. The deaths have attracted international attention and led to Congressional hearings, tweets from the White House and a visit to Long Island from the U.S. attorney general.
