Yesterday at approximately 11:15 p.m., members of the Hudson County Prosecutorâ€™s
Office Special Victims Unit arrested Theodore Wilson, 52, of Jersey City, on charges
related to sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl, Suarez said in a statement.
He was arrested without incident at the Prosecutorâ€™s Office in Jersey City.
The sexual assaults allegedly occurred in 2018 in the victimâ€™s home and were first reported to the Jersey City Police Department, who then notified the Prosecutorâ€™s Office SVU.
Wilson was arrested following an SVU investigation into the allegations. Wilson is reported to be acquainted with the victimâ€™s family.
As a result, he has been charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault by contact, two counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child and one count of fourth-degree lewdness, authorities said.
Following his arrest, Wilson was transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility in
Kearny pending his first appearance.
The prosecutorâ€™s office has filed a motion for pretrial detention of the defendant. A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, October 9th.
Suarez credited the Hudson County Prosecutorâ€™s Office Special Victims Unit for the investigation and arrest with assistance from the Jersey City Police Department.
