Toronto Police have issued an alert making the public aware of a sex offender who has been released back into the community.

47 year old William Shorten was released from custody and will be living in Toronto.

But police stop short of identifying which neighbourhood he'll be living in.

According to cops, Shorten has prior criminal convictions for indecent acts and sexual assaults involving children.

And they say he has the potential to re-offend.

Shorten is now allowed to attend any public park or public swimming area where kids under the age of 18 are present.

He's also not allowed to attend a daycare centre, school ground, playground or community centre.

Police ask that if you see him breaching the conditions of his bail, please call 9-1-1.

He was most recently arrested for an indecent act involving a 12 year old girl at a bookstore in the Yonge and Eglinton area.

Shorten has a long list of convictions on other similar charges. Between 1998 and 2007, he was convicted of 12 offences, all of which involved children between the ages of 5 and 14 years old.

All of the previous assaults happened in public places like bookstores and libraries in North York and Toronto.
