A 20-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in Carmel Valley on suspicion of kidnapping, performing sexual acts with a minor and child endangerment, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies took Jose Matias Reyes Alvarez, who is unemployed and from no known address, into custody from a residence in Carmel Valley where two female victims lived, the sheriff’s office reported.
At about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, a deputy responded to a home in Carmel Valley on a report of past physical abuse of a minor child, according to the sheriff’s office. A female juvenile told the deputy that Alvarez had battered her and showed the deputies a visible injury, the deputy reported. From an investigation, the sheriff’s office determined the suspect had been in a sexual relationship with another girl at the home and had taken her across state lines without her parents’ consent, deputies said.
Alvarez was booked into the Monterey County Main Jail on suspicion of kidnapping, child sexual abuse, child endangerment and an unrelated arrest warrant. Deputies are working on the case with the district attorney’s office, according to the sheriff’s office.
