Sex offender released in Winnipeg

Sex offender released in Winnipeg

Violence against women and young girls is a big problem in Canada. Unfortunately, statistic shows the increase in reports related to violence against women for the last decade. Manitoba had one of the highest rates of reported violence against girls and young women in 2017, according to a new Statistics Canada report.

Our own Winnipeg is recorded as having the third-highest rate among Canadian cities, according to the report.

Timothy Torres, 34, is a convicted sex offender who is considered at high risk to re-offend against all females — adults and children, police say.

After serving a sentence for two counts of breach of probation, Torres was released August 4th and is expected to reside in Winnipeg.

Torres is listed as 5’6″, 150 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. He has a “stab wound” scar on his upper abdomen. His criminal record includes sexual assault against a child and numerous breach of probation orders, police say.

Hopefully, this issue will be resolved, so we don't have to read in the news about sexual assaults and sex offenders in our city or human trafficking crimes in Canada.
