Trinidad Man Extradited From D.C. For Sexual Assaults Of St. Croix Men
CHRISTIANSTED — Police have arrested a Trinidad native who left St. Croix after a series of sexual assault-robberies four months ago once he was interviewed by police.
Terrance “Josh” Vidale, 34, a resident of Estate Glynn was extradited from Washington, D.C. and arrested about 2:39 p.m. on October 30 on charges of first-degree sexual contact, the police blotter indicates.
Vidale, known to frequent King’s Alley Condos, is a suspect in a series of sexual assaults in which men were drugged, robbed and woke up in unfamiliar clothes the next day.
The incidents date back at least to June 30 and police were able to interview Vidale in July at a Christiansted boutique prior to his leaving for Washington, D.C., where he was arrested in an unrelated incident there.
Bail for Vidale was set at $100,000. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the custody of the V.I. Bureau of Corrections at the Golden Grove Adult Correctional Facility.
Vidale said on social media that he is from Tunapuna Village, Saint George in Trinidad and Tobago.
VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte did not respond to multiple requests for information about the case.
