Man Charged for Sexual Assault of 13-Year-Old Girl

Glenford Alvarez

A father of Lacroix Boulevard in Belize City is in big trouble with the law after a thirteen-year-old child made a report that she was touched inappropriately by a grown man. Twenty-six-year-old fisherman, Glenford Alvarez appeared in court today and is spending his first night on remand after he was denied bail on two counts of sexual assault of the minor. He is to return to court on June thirteenth, 2019. Allegations are that sometime in the month of February 2019, he sexually assaulted the minor. The minor claims that she was at a home watching television when Alvarez visited and masturbated in front of her. On another occasion, on March fifteenth, 2019, she told police that she was sleeping when she felt someone rubbing her legs. It was Alvarez. He was sitting in a chair next to her bed and was masturbating again. At his arraignment, Alvarez pleaded not guilty to both charges. Relatives of Alvarez have since sought legal advice and are seeking Supreme Court bail for him at the Supreme Court.   Alvarez has a criminal case already before the court in which he and several others were charged for beating up a twenty-year-old fisherman from the Conch Shell Bay area.  This case is still before the court pending trial.
