Regina police are warning the public about a 57-year-old sex offender with a history of molesting young girls who is now living at a halfway house in the city.
Dennis Gladue is living in the city’s Heritage neighbourhood east of Broad Street and north of Victoria Avenue.
The police service is issuing the public advisory so residents can take precautions and preventative measures when interacting with Gladue and not to encourage any form of vigilantism.
An emailed news release from police says Gladue is a high risk to “reoffend sexually and/or violently, is now residing, supervised, at a federal residential facility” in the Heritage neighbourhood.
The release goes on to explain the man poses a high risk for sexual offences against young girls, adding the prospects are poor for reducing his risk through treatment and interventions.
Gladue is living under strict bail conditions at the supervised house, including: traveling only to pre-approved residences and informing his parole officer of any interactions with police. He must stay in Canada at all times and stay only within prescribed areas determined by his parole supervisor. He is also required to report any relationship, friendship or interactions with children, women or adults who are responsible for children and must not be in a position of trust with anyone under the age of 18.
Police describe Gladue as Métis, about five feet, nine inches tall, weighing about 176 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes as well as a two-inch tattoo of a cross on his upper right arm.
