On Feb. 24, police were looking for a convicted sex offender from Minnesota, who was last seen wearing a sweatshirt with "Blair" on the back. He had allegedly committed another sexual assault.
Christopher Donald Lee Blair, 35, is a level three sex offender who had previously used a weapon to kidnap female victims from public areas, according to KARE. He fled after allegedly committing what police described as a first-degree sexual conduct offense.
South St. Paul Police Chief William Messerich said Blair's most recent offense differs from his previous ones in that he knew the victim.
Under Minnesota law, first-degree sexual assault is defined as sexual penetration or sexual contact with someone under the age of 13, provided the offender is more than three years older than the victim, according to FindLaw. The offense often involves coercion and/or use of a weapon.
Police describe Blair as 6 feet 1 inches tall and weighing 212 pounds with brown hair and a possible beard or mustache. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie with the word "Blair" printed on the back. He may be driving a 2015 silver Ford Fiesta with Minnesota license plate 115-TGV.
Blair is thought to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
