FULLERTON (CBS) — Residents in Fullerton were on alert Thursday after police warned a convicted sex offender has moved into the neighborhood.

Police circulated community alert fliers with a photo and background information on Antoine Denell Jordan, 50, who police are calling a high-risk sex offender.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports Jordan was convicted of kidnapping and sexually assaulting as many as nine women at knifepoint near the University of Southern California campus in the early 1980s.

Police alerted residents that he Jordan had recently moved into a home at 1325 South Jefferson Avenue — just miles from the campuses of Fullerton College and Cal State Fullerton.

“We have had him under surveillance since we found out about his presence in our city while we were doing our investigation and our risk assessment,” said Fullerton police Capt. Alex Bastreri. “We’ve also met with him, we’ve had a face to face conversation with him, to advise him that this is our game plan.”

Bastreri said the disclosure was not intended to create fair but rather to ensure public safety.

Jordan is currently on parole after serving 22 years in prison.

    Who released this monster? He might victimize children and young adults. Don’t they know that this guy lives just a few blocks from an elementary school? Just a few blocks down the opposite direction, there is a junior high school and children walk by the street where this guy lives. I can’t believe he was released from jail even though he is considered a high risk sex offender.

    When he was convicted the law stated that he had to be released once he did his time. He did the time allotted and the jail had to release him. Stupid, Sure, but that was the law when he was convicted.

    However, just because he is out doesn’t mean he can just become annonymous, and the community can do anything. That’s why the Sheriffs Department did what they did. So the community itself could keep eyes on him. Trust me if he blows his probation, and he will, (they all do) the cops will be right there with the handcuffs.
