(Alexandria, MN)–The Alexandria Police Department has issued a notification of release of a male who has been convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct or another offense that requires registration with law enforcement pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 243.166 or 243.167.
Authorities say that 26-year-old Chris Giles-Ambriz has a history of engaging in sexual contact against a known female adult and an unknown female teen. In each incident Giles-Ambriz used attention and affection to gain access to the victims and provide them with a ride in his car. While in the car he used mood altering substances and coercion to gain and maintain control.
He reportedly will move into the 700 block of Nokomis Street in Alexandria on Oct. 30, 2023.
The Alexandria Police Department is releasing information pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 244.052 and 253D. These statutes authorize law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a public registrant’s release from prison or a secure treatment facility when the Alexandria Police Department believes that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection. This notification is not intended to increase fear but rather raise awareness. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public.
The Alexandria Police Department may not direct where this individual does or does not reside, nor can this agency direct where he/she works or goes to school.
Those convicted of sexual or predatory offenses have always been released to live in our communities. It was not until the passage of the Registration Act that law enforcement had an ability to track movement of these individuals after their initial release. With the passage of the Community Notification Act law enforcement may now share information about many of these individuals with the public. Abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered individual is unacceptable and such acts could be charged as a crime. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.
The Alexandria Police Department may be reached at 320-763-6631 if you have any questions. To report criminal activity by this registrant or any other individual, please call 911.
