Red Deer RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in locating a high-risk, violent sex offender who is suspected to be in the Red Deer area.

Red Deer RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in locating a high-risk, violent sex offender who is suspected to be in the Red Deer area.

Canada-wide warrants have been issued for Dean Zimmerman for breaching his recognizance.

Zimmerman, 47, is described as a Métis male who stands 1.75 metres (five feet nine inches) tall and weighs 93 kg (204 pounds). Zimmerman has brown eyes and brown hair.

“RCMP believe that there is a risk of significant harm to the health and safety of the public, and in particular, adult females who may become involved in a relationship with Zimmerman,” states a release.

Zimmerman was convicted of sexual assault, assault causing bodily harm, and sexual assault with a weapon and forcible confinement in three separate cases between 1998 and 2006.

Zimmerman was released in April from Bowden Institution after having served 34 months on six counts of breach of recognizance for keeping the peace, failure to comply with an order, and fraud under $5,000.

The release notes that members of the public should take “suitable precautionary measures” but not “embark on any form of vigilante action.”

Anyone with information as to Zimmerman’s whereabouts can contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.
