Background information:  
Timothy Frederick KOLTUSKY is a 32 year-old male with a criminal record for sexual offences as well as numerous other criminal offences.
   
In August 8, 2005, KOLTUSKY approached a sex trade worker. He took her to a secluded area along the riverbank in Winnipeg where he punched and kicked her numerous times causing injuries and attempted to throw her into the river. Two days later, he approached another sex trade worker. He took her to a secluded area where he began touching her in a sexual manner. He produced a rope which he put around the victim's neck. A struggle followed in which KOLTUSKY punched the victim, ripped off her shirt and bra and pulled down her pants. The victim was able to escape. KOLTUSKY was arrested a few days later and was remanded in custody.
   
Between September 18, 2006 and October 31, 2006, while in custody at Headingley Correctional Institution awaiting court on the above described offences, KOLTUSKY made numerous harassing telephone calls of a sexual nature to a woman.
   
At his sentencing hearing on these offences (sexual assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and harassing telephone calls), in February 2010, KOLTUSKY was declared a Long Term Offender, received a jail sentence of 9 months (in addition to the equivalent of 7 years and 6 months pre-sentence custody credit), and given a 10 year Long Term Supervision Order.  KOLTUSKY's was subsequently convicted of breaching the Long Term Supervision Order in October 2012, and received a sentence of one month (in addition to five months pre-sentence custody credit); and, in May 2013 and received a sentence of nine months (in addition to four months pre-sentence custody credit).  On October 24, 2014 KOLTUSKY was convicted of two additional counts of breaching the Long Term Supervision Order and attempt obstruct justice, and received a total sentence of two years and six months (in addition to six months pre-sentence custody credit). He will be released after serving that sentence on April 21, 2017.
  

While in custody, KOLTUSKY did participate in sex offender treatment programs. However, he is still considered a high risk to re-offend. Females are at risk of sexual violence.
