City police are advising the public of a high risk sex offender in Thunder Bay.

In a social media post the Thunder Bay Police Service says Dwayne Jeremiah has been released following the completion of his second federal sentence for sexual assault and assault-intentional use of force.

Prior to this sentence, he was also convicted and completed his sentence for sexual offences, assault with a weapon, and multiple assault and failures to comply.

The 46 year old has indicated upon his release he intends to reside in the area of Donald Street.

Jeremiah is described as an Indigenous male, 5’3″, 148 lbs, black hair, brown eyes with glasses.

He also has several tattoos: wings on both his forearms and “Maria” in a banner below a rose on his left forearm.

The information is being released as a precautionary measure, and are stressing that while Jeremiah does present a safety risk, he still has guaranteed rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Police will act to protect those rights should they be infringed.
