Winnipeg police are warning the public that a man who has been convicted of sexual assault several times is being released from prison, and is a high risk to reoffend.
Carlo Ryan Clarke, 39, was released from Stony Mountain Institution on Thursday and is expected to reside in Winnipeg, according to police, who consider Clarke a high risk of reoffending sexually or violently toward men and boys.
Clarke just finished serving a five-year sentence given to him on April 30, 2015, after he sexually assaulted a “vulnerable” 20-year-old man.
That offence occurred while Clarke was on probation for a prior sexual assault conviction. In October 2011, he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy and received a two-year-less-one-day conditional sentence, plus three years probation.
Clarke was also convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy, also described as vulnerable, in March 2000. He was given a six-month conditional sentence plus three years probation.
As of being released from Stony Mountain, Clarke cannot have any contact with anyone under the age of 16 unless supervised by someone “the court considers appropriate,” police say.
Clarke can also no longer work or volunteer in a position of trust or authority of people under 16 years old, and he cannot attend a public park or swimming pool where anyone under the age of 16 may be present.
That includes daycare centres, school grounds, playgrounds and community centres.
Clarke also subject to a lifetime weapons ban.
No vigilante activity or “other unreasonable conduct” toward Clarke will be tolerated, police said.
