Officials to host meeting about sex offender
April 5, 2011
King County Sheriff’s Office and Issaquah School District officials reached out to parents March 23, because a registered sex offender is moving to May Valley.
The sheriff’s office is holding a sexual-offender notification meeting April 20 at Apollo Elementary School.
The offender, Randall Eugene Berry, is moving to the 18800 block of Southeast May Valley Road. People living near Berry’s residence received mailers about the move.
Berry was charged with first-degree rape in 1984. Posing as an off-duty police officer with a fake badge, he used his vehicle’s headlights or emergency flashers to stop women who were driving alone, according to the sheriff’s office. He then told victims they had committed a traffic violation, or that they had defective vehicle equipment.
Berry then used a knife to force women from their vehicles and sexually assaulted them. The sheriff’s office said he had a total of four victims.
The sexual-offender notification meeting is in accordance with the Community Protection Act of 1990. People attending the meeting will learn about personal safety and how to best report criminal or suspicious activity.
