CHATHAM COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington man is in jail in Chatham County accused of raping his estranged wife.
The Chatham County Sheriff's Office Jesus Narciso Alvarez-Alba, 31, of Wilmington, had a domestic violence protective order issued against him by his estranged wife. Investigators say early Sunday morning he forced his way into her home in Moncure and raped her.
Deputies say they got a 911 call from the frantic woman. She told officers that she kept telling her husband to leave when he arrived at the house, but he kept refusing. He then held her down on the floor and raped her, investigators say. After he fell asleep, she contacted deputies, who arrested him while he was still at the home.
Alvarez-Alba is charged with felonious second degree rape, felonious second degree kidnapping, domestic criminal trespassing and violation of a court order. He was jailed under a $100,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in Chatham County District Court in Pittsboro July 29.
