A convicted sex offender considered at high risk to re‑offend is being released from prison and expected to live in Winnipeg.

All females are at risk, states a news release from the Manitoba Integrated High Risk Sex Offender Unit (MIHRSOU), a joint forces unit of the Winnipeg Police Service and RCMP.

Kenton Richard Bryer, also known as Richard Dale Bryer, is being released from Bowden Institution in Alberta on July 29 after serving a 10-year sentence (three-year prison sentence consecutive to a seven-year prison sentence regarding previous convictions) forsexual assault with a weapon.

Bryer, 49, has a lengthy history of violent and sexual offences and is designated a long-term offender. Upon release he will be subject to a 10-year supervision order.
