BOSTON — Boston Univeresity senior forward Corey Trivino, who leads Hockey East with 13 goals, was arrested on Sunday night, according to several published reports, and has been permanently dismissed from the University’s hockey team according to reports by BU Today and the Daily Free Press.
Trivino was charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14, three counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony and one count of assault to rape.
The Toronto native appeared in Brighton District Court on Monday where he pleaded not guilty to all charges. He was joined by his family. He was released without bail yesterday but was forced to surrender his passport. He must post $25,000 cash bail if he wants to use his passport.
According to a police report filed by the BU Police Department, the incident began when the alleged victim, a resident assistant, heard indivuduals being “extremely loud” in a nearby room. The RA went to the room in an attempt to quiet the individuals. Trivino allegedly followed her back to her room and pushed her door open, according to the report. The victim said in the report that she told Trivino to go back to his room, but he then allededley started kissing and groping the victim. Trivino then left, the report said.
A few minutes later, he allegedly returned and was banging on her door. The RA opened her door slightly and Trivino tried to kiss her, but she pushed him away, according to the report. The RA said in the report that she told Trivino “You need to stop,” and “You need to go.”
Trivino then allegedly cornered the victim by her desk and attempted to kiss her again as she pushed him away. The victim said in the report she was then able to get Trivino to leave and she texted a friend for help.
Trivino then allegedly returned a third time and banged loudly on the door. The victim said in the report that she needed to open the door as part of her RA duties. Trivino then allegedly forced is way into the room and tried to kiss her, according to the report. He then sat on her bed, took his shoes off and said he would sleep there that night and laid down, the report said.
At that time, the RA called the Resident Director, the report said. When Trivino heard her on the phone he put on his shoes and ran out of the room, the report said. The Resident Director told the victim to call the BU police department.
The report then states that “a very intoxicated male” got on the elevator with police responding to the call by the resident assistant. The man identified himself as Trivino and identified his room number as that of the RA, the report said, at which time he was arrested and held without bail until his court hearing on Monday.
Trivino has had disciplinary problems in the past, stemming from violations of team rules, also involving alcohol, that resulted in the suspension for the first two games of 2010-11 as well as the dismissal of Vinny Saponari.
Trivino is a 2008 second round draft pick of the New York Islanders.
