Mark Anthony Windrim, 40, will be residing in the area of Woodland Drive, according to a police news release.

His most recent charges stem from an incident in February 2021.

Police say Windrim is subject to several conditions. He is not to attend any public park, public swimming areas, daycares, schoolyards, playgrounds or community centres or be in the presence of, or communicate with, anyone under age 16. He is also to be inside his residence at all times unless in the company of his surety, the release said.

“This information is being issued to the public as a precautionary measure. Protecting public safety is among the Saugeen Shores Police Service’s top priorities. Members of the public are reminded that, although Windrim does present a safety risk, his rights are guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. As such, the Saugeen Shores Police Service will act to protect these rights if they are infringed,” the release says.
