Yesterday at approximately 11:15 p.m., members of the Hudson County Prosecutor’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 Prosecutor’s Office in Jersey City.
The sexual assaults allegedly occurred in 2018 in the victim’s home and were first reported to the Jersey City Police Department, who then notified the Prosecutor’s Office SVU.
Wilson was arrested following an SVU investigation into the allegations. Wilson is reported to be acquainted with the victim’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 prosecutor’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 Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit for the investigation and arrest with assistance from the Jersey City Police Department.
