  • Print

Police are notifying the public of a high-risk sex offender who was released from Headingley Correctional Centre on Thursday.

Winston George Thomas, 36, has previous convictions on two counts of sexual assault, two counts of assault, aggravated assault as well as other criminal offences.

Although Thomas has participated in some sex-offender treatment programs, officials say he is still considered to be a high-risk offender to females of all ages.

Upon release, Thomas will be subject to probation supervision until September 20, 2015 which includes the following conditions:

  • Participate and complete any assessments and/or treatment programs recommended by his probation officer;
  • Do not possess or consume alcohol, illegal drugs or any intoxicating substance;
  • Abide by a curfew from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. daily unless an exception is provided in writing by his probation officer; and
  • Do not possess any weapons of any kind.

 

Information on Thomas' release was made public to enable members of the public to take suitable measures to protect themselves, officials said. Any form of vigilante activity or other unreasonable conduct directed at Winston George Thomas will not be tolerated, the release said.

In announcing Thomsa' release, officials also encouraged members of the public to visit the Winnipeg Police website listing ways to help prevent sexual assault.

Anyone with information about Thomas may call the Manitoba Integrated High Risk Sex Offender Unit (MIHRSOU) at (204)984-1888, or the Winnipeg Police Service at 204-986-6222, local RCMP detachments, or Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477 or toll free at 1-800-222-8477.
