High-risk sex offender released, expected to live in Sandy Bay First Nation: Winnipeg police

WARNING: This story contains details of sexual assault.

A sex offender released from prison last week is considered to be a high risk to reoffend and expected to live in a First Nation in south-central Manitoba, Winnipeg police say.

Bryon Starr — who is also known as Clayton Starr, Chad Crate and Richard Starr — was released from a maximum-security facility in Ontario on Thursday, according to a Friday news release.

The 33-year-old is expected to live in Sandy Bay First Nation in south-central Manitoba, police say.

Starr served just over a decade in prison after he was convicted in 2013 of sexual assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, forcible confinement, fleeing a police officer, and failing to comply with a probation order, police say.

He has a history of violent sexual offences that took place between September 2010 and June 2011, which included stealing a stranger’s running vehicle with a female youth inside. He forcibly confined, threatened and sexually assaulted the girl.

Although he participated in some programming while in prison, police say Starr is still considered a high risk to reoffend in a sexually violent manner.

He is under a lifetime weapon prohibition order and other conditions following his release from custody, according to police.

Anyone with information about Starr is asked to call the Manitoba Integrated High-Risk Sex Offender Unit at 431-489-8056, Winnipeg police at 204-986-6222, or Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477. Police also warn that any form of vigilante activity or other unreasonable conduct directed at Starr will not be tolerated.

For anyone who has been sexually assaulted, there is support available through crisis lines and local support services via the Ending Violence Association of Canada database. ​​If you’re in immediate danger or fear for your safety or that of others around you, please call 911.
