A registered sex offender expected to move into Anoka is no longer planning to live in the city.
The Anoka Police Department was notified at 4:30 p.m. Monday (Jan. 28) that Robert A. Ziemann, 27, would not be living in the vicinity of Pleasant Street and Wingfield Avenue, according to Capt. Scott Nolan.
This was less than two hours before a community meeting planned to discuss Ziemann’s move with neighborhood residents.
The meeting was cancelled.
Ziemann has a record of criminal sexual conduct with girls ranging from seven to 13 years old, which included fondling and penetration. He had planned on moving into the area on Jan. 29, not Jan. 18 as was earlier released by the Minnesota Department of Corrections and reported by the Anoka County Union.
While Ziemann has served his sentence and is not wanted by police, a Level 3 offender has been classified to have a high risk of reoffense based on an assessment that looks at prior offense history, the offender’s characteristics and the community support available to the offender.
