Regina police are warning the public about a high-risk sex offender, who moved into the North Central area Friday.
Under the authority of the Saskatchewan Public Disclosure Act, the Regina Police Service issued an advisory regarding Phillip Lionel Levac, a 30-year-old man considered a high risk to reoffend sexually and/or violently.
Police reminded the public the information is intended to help members of the public take suitable, preventative measures — not to embark on vigilantism or “other unreasonable conduct.”
“The Regina Police Service hopes to raise community awareness about the presence of this offender so that people may make informed choices about contact with this person. This information is not to be used for an unlawful purpose,” a news release said.
Levac is described as 6-foot-1, with a muscular build, about 240 pounds, with light brown hair and green eyes. He may or may not wear glasses. Levac also has numerous tattoos covering his arms to the knuckles of his hands, including an angel on his left shoulder. Tattoos on his left leg include a skull on the outside of his left calf and the word, “DESECRATOR” on the left shin. The “A” in “DESECRATOR” is a five-point star in a circle.
Levac’s criminal history includes violent sexual offences and a history of re-offending, as both a youth and an adult. While incarcerated, he never completed programming to address his risk factors, nor has he made any progress in reducing his risk of violence, according to police.
He is bound by the following conditions: Keep the peace and be of good behaviour; appear before the court when required to do so; report in person to his probation officer; report in person to the police high-risk offender co-ordinator; live at an approved residence; maintain a curfew from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.; abstain from alcohol and other intoxicating substances or illicit drugs; stay out of bars and liquor outlets; notify his probation officer or designate of any person with whom he becomes involved in a sexual or close personal relationship; consent to the probation officer or designate notifying such person or persons of the offending history; have no contact with any of his victims; have no weapons; and stay within the city limits unless otherwise permitted.
Anyone who has questions or concerns is encouraged to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. The public is not required to contact police if they see Levac, but can if they want to report any alleged violation of conditions. Callers can phone the number above or Crime Stoppers at 305-545-TIPS (306-545-8477). Concerns or reports from persons living outside of Regina should be directed to the nearest detachment of the RCMP or local municipal police department.
