Michigan sex offender cuts GPS ankle bracelet while on parole before sexually assaulting woman: Police


The Detroit sex offender cut off his GPS monitor after parole two months before he allegedly committed a sexual assault on a woman and was captured after the victim came forward, authorities said.

Juanel Mobley, 42, was released from jail in October with a GPS tether, which he eventually cut off, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office told LBL. On Dec. 28, he allegedly violated a 28-year-old woman with a gun and dragged her into a secluded area, authorities said. Online records show that Mobley has several pre-convictions. He was convicted in 2007 for aggravated indecent assault, first-degree criminal sexual conduct and manslaughter and solicitation of a child under 13 in 2002, according to the state Department of Corrections.

She was later charged with robbery. The victim reported the incident to police.

Investigators retraced her steps and released surveillance images of the suspect, which led her to Mobley.

“She’s a hero. She’s a hero. And I want to tell her she’s a hero. And I want to thank her for what she did, thank you for coming forward,” Detroit Police Special Chief of Police Capt. Kimberly Blackwell told Victim Unit, Fox affiliate. WJBK-TV. “It’s a relief because we know such guys – they don’t stop.”
