A two-time convicted rapist who police say is at high-risk to reoffend has been released after serving his complete jail time.

Toronto police Const. Meaghan Gray warned the public that Ronald Peter Tibando, 46, will be living in Toronto after his release from prison on Thursday.

The Behavioural Assessment Section of the Toronto Police Service Sex Crimes Unit “assessed Ronald Tibando as a high-risk to reoffend,” Gray said in a release.

Tibando had been sentenced to 20 years for sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, forcible confinement and assault causing bodily harm.

In 1980, he attacked two women in underground parking garages in Toronto. Nine years later, while out on parole, Tibando sexually assaulted another woman in Peel region.

During his incarceration, he assaulted a female staff member and forcibly confined another in the same incident in May 1993, police said.

Police haven’t specified which area of Toronto Tibando will be living in, but said he will be under a number of restrictions.

He will report weekly to police, is not allowed to have contact with his prior victims, or visit any public parks or underground parking zones. Tibando cannot buy or consume alcohol or non-prescription drugs. He is also under curfew between

Police Warn Of High Risk Pedophile Released Back Into Toronto Neighbourhood

2008/02/21 | CityNews.ca Staff

His name is Junior Spencer and on Thursday, he took his first steps back into society. But Toronto Police are warning you should keep an eye on him if those steps take him near your kids.

They've issued a public safety alert about the 30-year-old, who has just been released after serving time for crimes against young boys. And they believe he could commit more of them.

"He is a significant high risk to re-offend in our opinion and we want to make sure the public is aware that he is out there," advises Toronto Police Sex Crimes Unit Det. Sgt. Gord Whealy.

Police won't, however, tell the public where he lives.

"We're not going to release the information about what neighbourhood he's in. We don't want to have him pushed out of a neighbourhood, go underground and us not be able to have control of where he is," Whealy adds.

That has some parents worried.

"It's an understandable fear but it also puts all the parents in the city at fear, too, because he could be anywhere, right?" asks mom Nerina Chiodo.

Spencer has a long history of harm against youngsters. His convictions include sexual assaults on kids 8-14 years of age and possession of child pornography, going back over a ten year period. Cops say his methods are those of a classic pedophile.

"He's a groomer," confirms Whealy. "H e will infiltrate a family so that he can gain access to the children. And he builds a relationship with the family and then offends."

Cops say he also volunteers frequently with agencies that deal with children, putting him into direct and close contact with them.

Spencer's release doesn't come without strings attached. He's due to be closely monitored by Corrections Canada for the next ten years and has to stay out of trouble if he wants to remain a free man. He's not supposed to be near anyone under the age of 18.

But spotting him may not be so easy. Cops describe him as a chameleon, who's capable of easily changing his appearance, prompting the need for a closer watch.  While he has to be given a chance to prove he can successfully return to society, if you see Junior Spencer near kids, call police at (416) 808-7474.

You can also contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

Friday January 23, 2009

Marejnejad is described as:

  • male
  • 5'11
  • 160 lbs. 
  • black hair
  • brown eyes

  • Toronto Residents Fear Convicted Sex Offender's Possible Return

    Saturday December 8, 2007

    It was 2003 when Christopher Goodwin committed a horrific sexual assault on a six-year-old girl inside Scarborough's Cedarbrae Mall.

    Then in October of this year, more than two years in the Kingston Penitentiary later, the 26-year-old was released having served his full sentence, only to end up behind bars a short time later when he violated release conditions.

    On Friday Goodwin was let out again. Toronto Police haven't confirmed he has or will return to the city, but they also haven't said he's not already here. Either way, the mere possibility has Toronto residents concerned.

    "When you don't know, you don't know, when you do know you get more afraid," admitted Lucie Dufault.

    Those fears are being compounded by the fact a news release from Kingston Police labels Goodwin as a high risk offender and describes his attacks as random and predatory in nature.

    Goodwin's potential return also raises the question of whether neighbourhood residents should be warned when dangerous offenders move in nearby.

    "If this guy has brazenly had a sexual assault in the middle of the day in a mall, who's to say he won't do it any other time?" asked local Ted Lenarczyn.

    Goodwin is under a 10-year supervision order, meaning he must abide by strict conditions set by the parole board or face a being put back in prison.

    Serial Rapist Declared Dangerous Offender After History Of Horrific Assaults

    Serial Rapist Declared Dangerous Offender After History Of Horrific Assaults

    Saturday October 20, 2007

    A serial rapist who terrorized women in Toronto, Ottawa and Peterborough over the past 25 years is now officially "a dangerous offender". 

    Brian George Clancy was sentenced Friday to an indefinite jail term.

    Documents show his latest victim suffered a five-hour ordeal in 2002. The 21-year-old woman was held captive and repeatedly sexually assaulted at Clancy's Toronto home. 

    The 47-year-old frequently used a weapon such as a knife or a broken glass against his victims, according to Justice Anne Molloy. She added that he kept assaulting women despite knowing he risked spending the rest of his life in prison.

     

    Cops Warn Residents Of Dangerous Offender's Release

    Cops Warn Residents Of Dangerous Offender's Release

    Thursday September 27, 2007

    It's a frustrating challenge for police - how to warn the public about a dangerous man without actually being able to say much about him. It's the dilemma that confronts the Peel force after they issued a public safety alert about a high risk offender's return to his old Brampton neighbourbood.

    Andrew Michael Townsend was released from the Kingston Pen on Thursday, after serving two years in jail for a variety of offences - including failure to comply with a probation order. But unlike other cases of this kind, authorities are facing a serious impediment in telling you why you should beware of the released prisoner.

    Townsend is 22 now, but was a young offender when he committed the crimes police are worried about. That means they can't tell you what it was he did or why they consider him such a risk to re-offend. All they have been able to reveal is a rather vague caveat that Townsend has a criminal record and has been convicted in the past of escaping custody. But the nature of his major offences remains shrouded in legal silence.

    But while cops want you to beware, they don't want you to take matters into your own hands if Townsend crosses your path. "Although Mr. Townsend does present a significant safety risk to the public, he is a citizen of Canada and has rights guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms," a police statement makes clear. "As such, the Peel Regional Police will act to protect these rights if they are infringed."

    His release comes with a host of conditions attached, including:

    • Keeping the peace,
    • Maintaining a 10pm-6am curfew,
    • Telling police if he changes his address and staying in Ontario,
    • Going back to school or looking for work,
    • Staying away from drugs and alcohol,
    • Prohibitions from possessing weapons and
    • Staying away from anyone with a criminal record.

    In the meantime, authorites are planning to go to court in early October to get a Section 810 against the newly freed ex-con. That would impose the same kinds of extreme restrictions that officials sought when Karla Homolka was released from jail in 2005.

    Warning issued upon release of sex offender

    toronto.ctv.ca

    Toronto police have issued a public safety warning following the release of a high-risk sex offender from prison.

    Michael Micallef, 47, was released from a penitentiary Thursday after serving his entire seven-year term for a violent sexual assault in the Albion and Weston roads area in the summer of 1998.

    Micallef has been assessed by the Toronto Police Service and Correctional Service of Canada as a high-risk to re-offend upon his return to the community.

    Officers have obtained a judicial restraint order that orders Micallef to:

    • Report weekly to police;
    • Not contact his prior victims;
    • Not attend any public park;
    • Not be in possession of firearms, weapons or non-prescription drugs; and
    • Not communicate with anyone known to him to be involved in criminal activity.

    Micallef was convicted of sexual assault with a weapon, uttering threats and forcible conferment after a 25-year-old woman was grabbed by the neck and sexually assaulted at knifepoint while walking along a section of the Humber Valley River Trail in July 1998.

    Police remind residents to use caution when travelling alone through isolated areas throughout the city.

    John 'Fester' Murray Melanson

    Police seek information on convicted sex offender

    toronto.ctv.ca

    Toronto police are asking residents to come forward with information following the arrest of a convicted sex offender last Thursday.

    Officers from the sex crimes unit, with the co-operation of the RCMP, apprehended John "Fester" Murray Melanson for allegedly failing to comply with court-ordered conditions imposed on him.

    Melanson, 43, was born in New Brunswick and has lived throughout Canada and the U.S. He moved to the Toronto area last month, police said.

    Melanson is a high-risk offender who has an extensive criminal record that includes sexual assault, invitation to sexual touching, possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

    The RCMP currently holds arrest warrants for allegations of sexual assault, sexual interference and possession of child pornography which allegedly occurred throughout the fall and winter of 2006.

    Melanson is described as white, 5-foot-8, 190 pounds, with a shaved head.

    Anyone who may have had contact with him or whose children may have had communicated with is asked to call Const. Brad Cooper at 416-808-8067.

    Information can also be left by contacting Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.222tips.com.

    Peel Police Issue Third Warning About Released Sex Offender

    2006/10/04 | CityNews.ca Staff

    He's back in the news - and quite possibly back in your neighbourhood.

    The ongoing saga of the man nobody wants continues in Mississauga, after Peel Police issued yet another community safety alert about a 29-year-old released prisoner they warn is likely to reoffend.

    We first told you about Roger Waddling last May, when he was set free from the Warkworth Correctional Facility after serving six years for aggravated sexual assault and forcible confinement on two women in 1998. His plan to move back into the Bloor and Dixie area met with anger and outrage from residents, who wondered if their children and wives would be safe.

    But their fear didn't last long. Waddling was back behind bars almost immediately when he was caught buying and consuming some alcohol - a violation of his release conditions.

    He was out again in July and stayed that way until September, when cops allege they caught him peeping into women's windows near Cawthra and Dundas. It was back to the hoosegow for a time, but now he's back out on the streets and cops know they can't watch him 24 hours a day.

    They feel he'll commit more crimes and are asking citizens to beware of their surroundings if they see him.

    Despite the insistent police alarms every time he returns, Waddling continues to insist he's not a danger to anyone. "I've done eight years in a penitentiary," he maintained in July. "That's enough man, that's enough to change people. The media is portraying me as some kind of animal and I'm not an animal."
