Police are warning the public about a convicted, untreated sex offender who was released from Stony Mountain Penitentiary Tuesday.

Christopher Assiniboine, 37, is considered a high risk to re-offend in a sexual/violent manner against all females, both adults and children, according to police.

Police say he’s expected to live in Winnipeg.

Assiniboine was serving a 90-day sentence for his 10-year term supervision order related to convictions of sexual assault and uttering threats in a 2015 incident involving an 18-year-old stranger.

Police said he committed those offences while on parole for a previous sexual assault conviction.

He has a long criminal record that includes sexual assault, robbery, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, assault, and breaching recognizance and prohibition orders.

In addition, his conditions include a prohibition against having contact with anyone under 18. He also has to live in an approved location, and is banned from consuming or purchasing drugs or alcohol.
