Another Level III sex offender is living Downtown.
Junaid Daulah Maalik is currently residing on the 1100 block of South 8th Street in the Elliot Park neighborhood, under "Phase Four" intense supervision, as his Level III classification indicates he is among those most likely to reoffend. Under those terms, Maalik must maintain full-time employment or a combination of education and work and adhere to a 10:30 p.m. curfew.
A public notification meeting was held Tuesday, May 3, and flyers were distributed in the neighborhood.
At the notification meeting, Minneapolis Police Sex Offender Notification Officer John Hinchliff incorrectly reported that Maalik is living with his girlfriend and her several children. Joe Longueville, Maalik's intense supervision release agent, confirmed that Maalik is living alone in a building that houses no minors. The terms of his supervision forbid him from living in a building with or having contact with minors.
Maalik was convicted in 1988 for kidnapping a 12-year-old girl off the street. He then transported her to a different location and forced her to have sex with him multiple times over a 24-hour period, using physical assault and threat of a weapon. He served an initial sentence of nearly 14 years in prison, with another 13 months for violating the terms of his release, according to Longueville.
Meanwhile, Level III sex offender John Kimball has moved from the 800 block of Hennepin Avenue South (Skyway News, April 4-10) to the 1000 block of Currie Avenue.
Hinchliff said that released Level III offenders often have trouble finding permanent housing and employment.
