Island Resident Charged With Rape, Taking Unsuspecting Nude Photographs Of Alleged Victim

David Creed •

An island resident was arraigned in Nantucket District Court Thursday afternoon on 11 charges alleging that he sexually assaulted his victim and filmed her without her consent or knowledge.

Yoaris M. Eustate Alvarado, 31, of Nantucket was arraigned on April 20, 2023 charges of rape and photographing an unsuspecting nude person (10 counts). He had not-guilty pleas entered on his behalf and his bail was set at $2,500 by Judge James M. Sullivan. The bail was posted by Alvarado's friend and he was released from custody.

According to the police report, Nantucket Police Detective Amanda Schwenk began an investigation in April of 2023 following a report from the alleged victim that she was being videotaped without consent.

Schwenk said after a warrant was issued to search Alvarado’s phone, a forensic download was conducted – revealing 11 videos of the alleged victim, 10 of which were of the victim nude. Two of the videos were recorded on January 7, 2023, and the alleged victim said she did not consent to being filmed or any sexual activity.

The nine remaining videos were taken on January 22, 2023, and the alleged victim told police she did not consent to being filmed and had no knowledge she was being filmed. The alleged victim was able to identify Alvarado in the videos due to the distinct tattoos on his hands, a yellow banded Apple Watch, and his voice.

Alvarado was ordered to stay away and have no contact with the alleged victim, her workplace, and her home.

In early January, Alvarado pleaded guilty to April 20, 2023 charges of breaking and entering a building in the nighttime for a felony and possessing ammunition without an FID card. He was ordered to complete one year of probation (which he is currently serving), stay away and have no contact with the victim, and pay a $90 victim/witness fee. After pleading guilty to a felony, Alvarado was required to supply the state with a DNA sample.

Charges of assault & battery, assault with a dangerous weapon (two counts), and malicious destruction of property under $1,200 were dismissed as part of the plea.

The police report from that previous incident in April 2023 stated that Alvarado broke into a home on Nantucket, physically assaulted an individual inside, and later threatened to shoot the alleged victim with a BB gun multiple times.
