A Bellevue teen is facing charges in connection with a sexual assault at a care facility for those with disabilities. Laurie Synowiecki with the Bellevue Police Department says 18 year old Jesse Alvarez-Rodriguez is accused of sexually assaulting a caretaker and holding her against her will.
Synowiecki says, “The victim in this matter was extremely brave and extremely smart in the way she was able to get away from this suspect. She was able to do so and contacted law enforcement where she was found right outside the residence.”
Alvarez-Rodriguez is charged with sexual assault, false imprisonment and strangulation. The victim was treated at a hospital and continues to recover from her ordeal.
