A registered "sexually violent" offender convicted of forcibly raping a woman in 2010 has changed addresses in Westchester County.
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert on Wednesday to Westchester residents regarding the residency of 35-year-old Warren Singleton, who has moved from a Sandford Boulevard apartment to a residence on West 8th Street in Mount Vernon.
The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Singleton as a level two threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense."
According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Singleton raped and forcibly compelled his female victim with a knife in December 2007. He was arrested by the New York City Police Department's Sex Offender Unit and sentenced to eight years in state prison in September 2010. He is now under the jurisdiction of the Mount Vernon Police Department.
