REGINA -- The Regina Police Service has issued a public advisory for a man who is considered to be a high risk to reoffend sexually.

Christopher Jacob Boerma, 29, moved to Regina’s North Central neighbourhood on Feb. 1. He is described as 6’6” tall, weighing 190 pounds with a thin build.

According to police, Boerma has a criminal history which includes sexual offences and has a history of reoffending as an adult.
