A former Channelview youth minister has been arrested in New York City for the sexual assault of a child in Harris County. Investigators believe there may be more victims and if so, are asking them to please come forward.
Jude Ramdial, 33, was a former youth minister at the Woodforest Worship Center Church of God in Channelview. He’s accused of sexually assaulting a female member of the youth group. The victim is now an adult and recently reported the assault to the authorities. Ramdial is also accused by two other former youth members of indecency with a child.
Due to the alone time Ramdial had with members of the youth group, HCSO investigators believe there may be more victims who have yet come forward.
Ramdial moved to New York after his ministerial credentials were revoked by the church. There he and family members established the HopeNYC church where he served as ‘pastor’ until his arrest this week.
Anyone who has been a victim of Jude Ramdial is asked to report it immediately to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children by calling 713-830-3203.
