The attack occurred the evening of Jan. 14 in the firehouse at 746 Centre St., the female firefighter alleged, according to documents filed in West Roxbury Municipal Court.

Firefighter David Sanchez, 37, of Hyde Park, was arraigned in that court April 18. He faces charges of indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older and assault and battery. A not-guilty plea was entered on behalf of Sanchez, who joined the Boston Fire Department in 2006.
