Police notify community of Level 3 sex offenders in area

Two Level 3 sex offenders recently moved to North Beacon Hill, according to a Seattle Police Department announcement distributed this week to notify neighbors about seven offenders who have moved into the South Precinct. Two of the offenders are living in North Beacon Hill, one in Georgetown, one in Columbia City, one in Sodo, and two near the Othello area of Rainier Valley.

The offenders on North Beacon are Malik Calhoun, 20, who moved to the 1300 block of 15th Avenue South, and Michael L. Johnson, 35, who moved to the 1400 block of South Columbian Way.

These offenders have completed their sentences and are free to live wherever they wish; however, they are required to register in the community where they live, and police may publicize their presence. It is against the law to use this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex offenders.

Here is the announcement from Mark Solomon at the SPD:
