BROCKTON – A man indicted and charged with child rape, pleaded not guilty today in Brockton Superior Court, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.

Cory B. Alvarez, 26, pleaded not guilty to one count each of Aggravated Rape of a Child with 10 Year Age Difference and Rape of a Child by Force. In March, Alvarez was found dangerous, and he currently remains held without bail.

The indictments follow an investigation by Rockland Police. At approximately 7:06 p.m. on March 13, 2024, Rockland Police were dispatched to the Comfort Inn at 850 Hingham Street for a report of a sexual assault. The Comfort Inn is currently part of a state/federal program to house migrant families. Alvarez resided at that address.

Upon arrival, Rockland Police encountered the 15 year-old female victim, who was then transported to South Shore Hospital for treatment. As a result of their investigation, Rockland Police developed probable cause to arrest Alvarez, and he was taken into custody.

Alvarez is next scheduled to appear in court on June 11th.

Assistant District Attorney Shanan Buckingham is prosecuting the case, which was investigated by Rockland Police.
