A convicted sex offender with a long history of violent attacks has been released again in Winnipeg after his most recent stay at Headingley Correctional Center.
The Manitoba Integrated High-Risk Sex Offender Unit (MIHRSOU), a joint unit of the Manitoba RCMP and Winnipeg police, said Monday that Curtis Leroy George, 30, was released Sunday after serving nearly 300 days for making threats and not complying.
He is considered at high risk for sexual and violent reoffending against women and girls of all ages, police said.

George’s criminal record dates back more than a decade and includes convictions for criminal harassment, sexual assault, sexual interference with a minor, and more.
In 2018, George was sentenced to two years for harassing, following and exposing himself to a woman for an extended period at his workplace and nearby buildings.
Before that, in 2011, he was convicted of five counts of sexual assault in connection with random attacks on women who were walking or jogging.

That same year, he was also convicted of sexual interference with a 13-year-old girl and assaulting a prison officer.
Police said George is subject to conditions through 2024, barring him from attending various venues in downtown Winnipeg, including Portage Place, City Place, Canada Life Center or the skywalk that connects all of those buildings.
You are also prohibited from being within 10 meters of 345 Graham Ave. and the City Place parking lot.
Other restrictions prohibit you from attending a public park or bathing area where people under the age of 16 are present or can be expected to be present, and you are prohibited from going to day care centers, school grounds, playgrounds, and community centers.
