FAIRFIELD, NJ - At 9 a.m., on Thursday, the Fairfield Police Department received a 911 call reporting that a car in the parking lot of Robinson Tech International (RTI, a wire-fencing company located at 310 Fairfield Road, Fairfield) appeared to have blood dripping out of it. The empty car was then identified by the company as belonging to their employee, Theodore Wilson, age 45, from Jersey City.
After a search of the premises, officers found Wilson in a vacant second floor warehouse area, apparently holding a knife and threatening to do harm to himself. It appeared to Sergeant Joseph Keegan and Officer Christopher Nicholas that Wilson had already been injuring himself with the knife, and was losing a substantial amount of blood.
Within 15 minutes, Wilson collapsed and was subsequently transported to Morristown Memorial Hospital for medical treatment, accompanied by police.
Individuals from the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, who had originally arrived at the RTI building to arrest Wilson on suspicion of committing Aggravated Sexual Assault on a Minor and for Endangering the Welfare of a Minor, discovered that he had been transferred to the hospital; they then went to the hospital and served him with an arrest warrant.
On Thursday, Deputy Chief Anthony Manna from the Fairfield Police Department, put out the following statement:
On Feb. 21 at approximately 9 a.m., the Fairfield Police Department received a 9-1-1 call reporting that a vehicle that was parked in the lot of Robinson Tech International, located at 310 Fairfield Road, had what appeared to be blood dripping from it.
First arriving officers observed a 1998 green Isuzu parked backed into a space. The officers observed a pool of blood under the vehicle and a substantial amount of blood inside of the driver side of the vehicle.
The vehicle was identified by employees of the company as belonging to a co-worker identified as Theodore Wilson (45) of Jersey City, N.J. A brief investigation indicated that other employees had observed Wilson at the company earlier but his whereabouts were currently unknown.
While searching the building, officers came upon Wilson in a vacant second floor warehouse area, allegedly in possession of a knife and threatening self harm. Officers observed that Wilson had allegedly already cut himself and had lost a substantial amount of blood.
Sergeant Joseph Keegan and Officer Christopher Nicholas, supported by other Fairfield officers, attempted to negotiate with Wilson. After approximately 10-15 minutes, Wilson stood up and then apparently passed out because of his wounds. He was treated by the officers at the scene and eventually transported to Morristown Memorial Hospital for additional medical treatment, accompanied by police.
While Fairfield officers continued their investigation, investigators from the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office coincidentally arrived at the scene to arrest Wilson, for having allegedly committed aggravated sexual assault on a minor and for endangering the welfare of a minor within Hudson County.
These investigators were informed what occurred. They then proceeded to the hospital to serve Wilson with the arrest warrant. It is unclear as to whether Wilson’s actions in Fairfield had anything to do with the outstanding charges. Wilson was not charged with any violations of law in Fairfield. (It should be noted that any charges against Wilson are merely allegations and that he is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law).
