Buffalo man accused of forcibly touching woman in her apartment


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo man has been arraigned on charges of forcible touching and harassment.

Prosecutors say last month, 58-year-old Alan Core, Sr. forcibly touched a woman’s intimate parts in her apartment.

Core was a member of the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority’s Board of Commissioners. Mayor Byron Brown released a statement on Core’s resignation:

“I have accepted the resignation of Alan Core from the BMHA Board of Commissioners. These allegations are concerning and should be fully investigated. I will move quickly to fill the position so the BMHA can continue the important work of serving its residents.”

After appearing in court, Core was released on his own recognizance. He’ll be back in court on August 17.
