A man with a long history of violent and sexual offences against teenage girls is being released from prison and expected to live in Winnipeg.
Kenton Richard Bryer, 50, also known as Richard Dale Bryer, is being released from Stony Mountain Institution on Saturday, stated a news release from the Manitoba Integrated High Risk Sex Offender Unit (MIHRSOU), a joint forces unit of the Winnipeg Police Service and RCMP.
The MIHRSOU put out the release on Friday to alert the public.
Bryer has participated in some treatment programming in prison but is still considered at high risk to re-offend in a sexual or violent manner. All females are at risk, the MIHRSOU stated.
Bryer's previous convictions include two counts of sexual assault with a weapon in 2003. That stemmed from incidents in 1997 when he sexually assaulted two teenage girls at knifepoint in separate incidents.
Other incidents of violence include an assault against his common-law wife and two convictions in 1985 of assault causing bodily harm.
"This information is provided to enable members of the public to take suitable measures to protect themselves. Any form of vigilante activity or other unreasonable conduct directed at Kenton Richard Bryer will not be tolerated," stated the release from the MIHRSOU.
Anyone with information about Bryer who wishes to speak to a police officer, is asked to call the MIHRSOU at 204-984-1888.
