Woman finds stranger in her house

Marin Alvarenga

A Belmopan resident will spend Christmas in prison for allegedly breaking into the home of Josephine Sanchez in Belize City and attacking her fifteen year old daughter. Today, the accused man, twenty year old Marin Alvarenga, appeared before Magistrate Roberto Ordonez and pleaded not guilty to a charge of Aggravated Burglary. The minor alleges that at around ten o’clock last Friday night, she got out of bed and was heading to the kitchen when she saw Alvarenga inside the house. She claims he was armed with a knife and attacked her, but she ran, screaming for help. But Alvarenga’s version of the story is just the opposite. He told the court that he met Sanchez at a bar and she offered to let him stay at her house for the night.  According to Alvarenga, he woke up hungry and went to the kitchen to get someone to eat and just as he picked up a knife to cut a slice of bread, the fifteen year old walked in and was frightened. He was denied bail and has been remanded at the Belize Central Prison until December thirtieth.
