The trial for a U.S. man accused of abducting an Edmonton child he met online and raping her has been rescheduled for the fall.

Noah Madrano is accused of kidnapping a 13-year-old girl in Edmonton, taking her across the U.S. border in his vehicle’s trunk and sexually abusing her.

The U.S. federal trial in Oregon was expected to begin next week but has been postponed to Nov. 7.

Madrano was denied bail last November.

The accused allegedly travelled to Edmonton to meet the 13-year-old girl in person twice before taking her into the United States.

He took her to a hotel room in Canada, sexually abused her and made videos of the abuse, according to an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint.

Madrano on a second trip allegedly abducted the girl from near her school, took her to a hotel room and sexually abused her for several days.

After briefly returning to the United States, Madrano went back to Canada, picked up the child and drove her in the trunk of his vehicle to a hotel in Oregon City, where he continued to abuse her, prosecutors allege.

On July 2, 2022, FBI agents and Oregon City police found Madrano and the girl in the Oregon City hotel.
