Osceola County, FL – On February 28th, 2023, Pastor Eddy Noelsaint of the Eglise Evangelique De La Restauration was arrested for two counts of sexual battery.
Pastor Noelsaint lured a female member of his church to his home in Kissimmee by telling her he was going to perform a “spiritual revival.” The promise of the revival was based upon religious norms for her while she was in her home country of Haiti and was part of the practice of his church.
During the “revival,” Pastor Noelsaint gave the church member tea and unidentified pills. These narcotics made the church member sick and placed her in a weakened state. Once she was feeling the effects, the Pastor sexually battered her.
Months later, the Pastor persuaded the church member to meet with him and a friend to look for apartments. When she arrived, no one was there except for Pastor Noelsaint. He then violently attacked and sexually battered her.
Although initially evasive in answering questions, Pastor Eddy Noelsaint confessed to the prior sexual encounters with the church member.
The Sheriff’s Office asks if anyone else has had similar encounters with Pastor Eddy Noelsaint to contact our office immediately. His church is located at 2160 N. Hiawassee Road, Orlando, Fl 32818.
