An admitted MS-13 gang member is accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend with a pair of scissors.
Police say 30-year-old Kenny Cruz, of Bay Shore, punched and kicked the 32-year-old victim, threw her to the ground, hit her in the head with a stapler and then stabbed her with a pair of scissors.
They say that despite three stab wounds and a collapsed lung, the victim was able to drive herself from Hempstead to New Cassel.

Police say Cruz's mother was there and tried to intervene but that Cruz threatened her as well.
