Man accused of raping 15-year-old girl at Rockland migrant shelter charged, prosecutor says

A Haitian migrant accused of raping a 15-year-old girl at a Rockland shelter has been charged with child rape, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz announced.

Cory B. Alvarez, 26, of Haiti, who lived at the Comfort Inn, was indicted Tuesday by a Plymouth County grand jury on one count of aggravated rape of a child 10 years apart and rape of a child 10 years apart of ten years. child with violence.

In March, Alvarez pleaded not guilty to those charges and was held without bail and currently remains behind bars, Cruz said.

The charges follow an investigation by Rockland police after officers responded to the Comfort Inn at 850 Hingham St. on March 13 for a report of a sexual assault, Cruz said. The Comfort Inn is currently part of a government program to house migrant families, and Alvarez lived at that address.

When officers arrived, they found a 15-year-old girl, who was then taken by ambulance to South Shore Hospital for treatment, Cruz said.

The girl, who speaks only Haitian Creole, told investigators through an interpreter that she went to Alvarez’s room so he could help her with apps on a tablet before forcing himself on her.

The alleged victim told police: “I asked him to leave me alone but he didn’t stop.”

As a result of their investigation, Rockland police developed probable cause to arrest Alvarez, and he was taken into custody.

The court ordered that Alvarez surrender his passport and have no contact with the victim while in custody, Cruz said.

Alvarez will be arraigned in Superior Court on the charges at a later date.
