A San Luis Obispo sex offender ripped off his ankle bracelet on Wednesday, but did not evade parole agents for long.

Avril Leroy King, 40, served a six-year prison sentence for a violent sexual assault he committed in San Luis Obispo, according to the city police department. Following the crime in 2008, the Mustang Daily reported that King, then 33, was suspected of raping an 18-year-old woman in the San Luis Obispo creek.

The article states that, around 8 p.m. on a Thursday, the woman appeared outside the police department saying she had been sexually assaulted. She was wet and partially clothed at the time.

San Luis Obispo police say King was most recently released from prison on March 9. After his initial release in 2014, King cut off his ankle bracelet and subsequently served a six-month prison sentence.

Since his release earlier this month, King had been living at Sunny Acres on Los Osos Valley Road, according to police. He left for unknown reasons.

Around 5:50 a.m. on Wednesday, state parole agents notified the police department that King cut off his ankle bracelet within the previous hour and was believed to be in the San Luis Obispo area. Parole agents found the bracelet near the San Luis Obispo mission and located King hours later.Screen Shot 2015-03-19 at 6.23.42 PM

They took him into custody without incident.

A press release that police circulated prior to King’s capture notes that the convicted sex offender has an assortment of tattoos. They include a skull on his lower abdomen, a “tribal band” on his left wrist, a leaf on the web of his left hand, a tiger on the left side of his chest, and a “Face with Derby” on his left shoulder.

Why would he want to steal a bracelet? Misleading header.

I am the father of daughters. Give him to the father of the girl he assaulted. If he doesnt wanted him give him to me. I would make a training film for ISIS out of him. It would be a 6 week mini series.

First, finish your GED so you can spell properly, then you can carry out your vigilante BS

No, castration won’t help because rape is a violent crime, not a crime of passion. It has nothing to do with sex, other than that’s the weapon. This guy would probably use a bottle or something else. The solution is humane execution.

It would help a lot if he spent the balance of his days holding his crotch to stem the bleeding.


What do you mean it wouldn’t help?

Now we will be the happiest and best smelling city only the politics will stink. We all now how to get rid of that!

Simple solution-

when he rips off the bracelet, responders rip off his ‘you know what’.


Then put the bracelet back on.


justbeware

Put the bracelet around his neck.


When he rips it off the next time, his head comes off too. That’ll work.

Why is he still alive! His intentions were to rape again when he removed that bracelet.


SloTownMan

Why should he be allowed to breathe ?


bobfromsanluis

Castration, or amputation?


the guy paso

How about both?


justbeware

How many chances does this creep get?

For the public’s protection we really should implement mandatory castration for offenders like this.
