FOUND-Peterborough Police Issue Public Safety Alert For Man With History Of Child Sexual Assault Offences

UPDATE: Police say he’s been found. No word on charges.

PETERBOROUGH-The Peterborough Police Service is searching for a repeat sexual offender who fled from his residence in Peterborough shortly after a search warrant was conducted there on Thursday, January 24, 2024.

The evidence recovered, as a result of the search warrant, has led Investigators to believe that reasonable and probable grounds exist for charges of possession of child pornography. A warrant for the arrest of Jason Outhwaite, a 46-year-old male, for possession of child pornography, has been issued.

It is believed Outhwaite is operating an older style white Dodge Ram pick-up truck with Ontario License plate BW88604.

Outhwaite is described as

  • 5’9 and 190lbs
  • Medium build
  • Receding black and grey hair and brown eyes
  • He is known to wear prescription glasses.

Police say Outhwaite has a history of sexual assault and has multiple convictions of sexual offences against children.

The Peterborough Police Service is releasing his name and picture as there is concern that he is a risk to the public, specifically children, and is a risk to reoffend.

Anyone who has seen Outhwaite, or has information on his whereabouts, is asked to call 911.

Crime Stoppers will also take tips anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.stopcrimehere.ca.
