A Dartmouth DPW worker accused of rape has been released on $5,000 cash bail following a dangerousness hearing in Fall River District Court on Friday.

Kevin Nunes, 48, was also ordered by a judge to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet, adhere to an 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, and have no contact with any victim or witnesses, according to information provided by the Westport Police Department.

Nunes, of North Dartmouth, was arrested last Thursday and charged with rape and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14. The alleged incident occurred in Westport on January 18, and few details have been released. Portions of the court docket have been sealed, a court officer told WBSM.

Nunes is an employee of the Town of Dartmouth Water Department, Westport Police confirmed.

"Due to the charges, I cannot comment on the particulars of the investigation. However, Dartmouth Police assisted in the investigation led by Detective Jeffrey Majewski," wrote Westport Police Sgt. Christopher Dunn in an email.

Dunn said that due to the state's rape shield law, the department will not release the department's police incident report at this time.
