Ramiro Gutierrez, a member of MS-13 in this country illegally and accused of murdering a rival on a subway platform in broad-daylight, wouldn't be recognizable if members of the New York Police Department had their way.

Gutierrez, 26, has been in custody since Monday for the execution-style killing of Abel Mosso, 20, in front of horrified straphangers.

But cops waited until 4 a.m. Tuesday to announce that he had been formally charged.

Then they called reporters Tuesday afternoon to say that he would be walked out of the 115th Precinct station house at 4 p.m. — only to sneak him out a back door by 2 p.m. en route to a courthouse in Queens.

It would have been the public’s first chance to get a good look at the accused killer — had The Post not already put him on the front page Tuesday thanks to law enforcement sources.
