(ABC 6 News) – The Rochester Police Department (RPD) in accordance with Minnesota’s Community Notification Act are releasing information regarding a Level 3 predatory offender’s change of residence.
Patrick Alfonso Terrell. Jr., 27, changed his residence to the 1400 block of 4th Ave. SE in Rochester on July 25, 2023.
According to RPD, Terrell, Jr. has a history of sexual contact with known and unknown adult females. Terrell gained access to one female as she was assisting him to attain services and employment, and another by approaching her in a public setting. Force had been used to gain compliance.
