Sex Offender Accused In Minn. Home Invasion

GREY EAGLE, Minn. (AP) — A registered sex offender is accused of breaking into an 82-year-old woman’s home in central Minnesota, robbing and sexually assaulting her.

Todd County authorities allege that 42-year-old Robert John Wilder of Swanville forced his way into the woman’s home on Oct. 30 and cut her face with a knife. The charges allege Wilder also stole cash, tied the woman up and sexually assaulted her before fleeing.

Wilder faces charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon and making terroristic threats.

Wilder is jailed in Crow Wing County, where he was charged in a different case in January. Wilder is accused of punching and raping a woman, then forcing her male friend and her to perform sex acts.

    Assulting an 82 year old!!! This is why sex offenders should never be released! Or better yet they should all be shot!

  11. Cache says:

    Move him into the home of a bleeding heart who wants to support him…just the ticket! Retribution for the victims!

    I’d like my money (tax money) to be put to better use! apparently rehabilitation is unsuccessful in sex offender rehab….. I’d pay for a one way ticket to “the tent city” in Arizona!

  13. WT? says:

    Why do the offenders have more rights than the victims? Why do the offenders have more rights than the general public? Why is this guy not in jail from the January charges?

  14. Victim Du Jour says:

    Perhaps they have to redefine rape and reserve prisons for violent sex offenders. And just charger regular sex offenders with assault.

    That way you aren’t flooding prisons and making room for date rapers and people who don’t even commit an actual sex act.

    It’s fun to put people who pee outdoors on the sex offender registry, but don’t expect them to find a Job, a home or live a normal life after they
    complete sex offender school.

    I think people are just amusing themselves releasing sex offenders, and watching them turn into nut cases and re-offending on purpose to go back to prison.

    So lets waste all our money for him to have a long drawn out trial, be found guilty and then have the nerve to look at the victim and/or family and say ‘ I am sorry for the pain I caused’ BULL. Some justice is simply Black and White and needs to be treated as such!

    SKIN HIM ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If he is 5′ 9, hang him at 5′ 8.5″, and see how long long it takes to see him get tired of standing on tip-toes. He deserves it!!!!! Let him stay til he hangs himself! Pack a picnic and let all sex offendors watch, this could help as a deterent.

    What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Do you have any facts about this case? Or have you all decided he is guilty based solely on this short article? Shame on you, all of you!
