Vic escapee arrested

March 01, 2014 1:41PM

A SEX offender who escaped from a Victorian facility for a second time has been arrested at a bus stop.

Sean Carmody-Coyle, 28, was caught at a bus stop in Ararat, southwest Victoria, just after 9am (AEDT) Saturday, police said.

He is expected to be charged with breaching his supervision order.

Carmody-Coyle was wearing two ankle bracelets designed to track his every movement.

Police say an alarm was triggered when he fled Corella Place overnight on Friday.

Corella Place, near Ararat, is a transitional facility for sex offenders who have completed their prison sentences.

Carmody-Coyle had been serving the second of a five-year court supervision order which dictated he live at the facility and adhere to a curfew.

He fled the facility last year but was found in a nearby paddock the next day.

A dangerous sex offender is on the run after escaping from a corrections facility near Ararat, west of Melbourne, early this morning.

Police say Sean Carmody-Coyle, who has an electronic tag, was last detected at 1am (local time) at the Corella Place facility.

It is the second time in less than a year he has gone missing from the facility, which houses dangerous sex offenders who have finished their sentences.

It is believed Carmody-Coyle, 28, managed to remove the electronic tag, which triggered an alert.

The ABC also believes the sex offender was returned to prison last year after breaching his order by absconding.

Police say he might be armed with knives and travelling on a mountain bike and have urged the public not to approach him.

Sean Carmody-Coyle has gone missing from the Ararat prison for the second time in less than a year.

Carmody-Coyle is Caucasian, 204 centimetres tall and thought to be wearing a black tracksuit.

In June last year he went missing from the facility during the night with another sex offender and was located 23 kilometres away the next afternoon.

There are about 35 residents at Corella Place. They have finished their sentences but are considered unacceptable risks to community.

Corella Place is a residential facility that is next door to the Ararat prison, the Hopkins Correctional Centre.

It is about two kilometres from the town centre.

Residents are housed in one, two and three-bedroom houses and have a strict curfew, but are taken on escorted trips to nearby towns and to Melbourne.

Two of the state’s worst sex fiends – including one who sexually assaulted a five-year-old boy in a toilet block – have been caught after escaping from a corrections facility in Ararat.

Police were hunting for the two men, who escaped from residential facility Corella Place about 11.30pm on Wednesday, until they were found at Buangor.

The pair were arrested on the Western Highway about 23 kilometres from Ararat, at 12.40pm.

The men are serious sex offenders on supervision orders. They were wearing electronic monitoring ankle bracelets which sent an alert to staff when they fled the facility.

The men who escaped are David Gregory Byrnes and Sean Andrew Carmody-Coyle.

Byrnes, 26, sexually assaulted a five-year-old boy at a shopping centre in 2004.

The boy was assaulted at Kmart in Belmont. As the child left a toilet cubicle, Byrnes pushed him back inside and locked the door before sexually assaulting him.

Byrnes, who was 18 at the time of the offence, had a mild intellectual disability and had been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder for which he was supposed to be medicated.

He told a court that voices in his head made him attack the boy.

Less information is known about the offending of Carmody-Coyle, 27.

A Corrections Victoria spokesman confirmed the men had “breached their court-ordered curfews and left the facility unaccompanied late last night”.

There are 35 residents at Corella Place, including child sex offenders and rapists. They have finished their sentences but are considered unacceptable risks to community.

Corella Place is a residential facility that is next door to the Ararat prison, the Hopkins Correctional Centre.

It is about 2 kilometres from the town centre.

Residents are housed in one, two and three-bedroom houses and have a strict curfew, but are taken on escorted trips to nearby towns and to Melbourne.

Acting Commander Neil Paterson of the Intelligence and Covert Support Department said Ararat police had searched for the men early on Thursday morning, before the fugitive taskforce was called.

He said both men had criminal histories of violent sexual offending.

There is no information that suggests the men, who had access to mobile phones and cash, were assisted in their escape.

The men had previously lived in various places throughout regional and metropolitan Victoria.

Corrections Victoria commissioner Jan Shuard said there had been five breaches of orders involving Corella Place since the facility was established seven years ago.

Byrnes had been responsible for one previous breach. He has served 12 months of an eight-year order that started in May 2012.

Carmody-Coyle is four months into a five-year order that stared in February this year.

A police spokeswoman said the pair will be charged with breaching the serious sex offender supervision orders which carries a maximum penalty of five years’ jail.

Byrnes was given a two-month penalty for his previous breach.

The men had been living in separate residences.

Corrections Minister Edward O’Donohue announced in May that the residents would be the first to use GPS bracelets that could trace dangerous parolees or those on sex-offender supervision orders.

The existing bracelets use radio frequency technology that only flags when an offender is in a specific area and does not track them outside that zone.

The GPS bracelets that track the exact locations of people are scheduled to be introduced next month.

Victorian sex offenders nabbed after escape

June 20, 2013: Two violent sex offenders who escaped from an Ararat correctional facility have led police on a 12-hour hunt, ending in their arrest outside a pub.

A pair of violent sex offenders face a return to prison after a short-lived escape from a residential facility in regional Victoria.

Sean Andrew Carmody-Coyle, 27, and David Gregory Byrnes, 26, walked out of Corella Place, near Ararat Prison, late on Wednesday night.They were captured on the Western Highway at nearby Buangor on Thursday afternoon.The pair both served sentences for sexual offences, but were under court supervision orders which dictated they live at the facility and adhere to a curfew.

Police say both men will be charged with breaches of the Serious Sex Offenders Act.

The maximum penalty for a breach is five years’ imprisonment.

Byrnes was put on an eight year supervision order in May last year, while Carmody-Coyle was put on a five year order in February.

Victoria Police Acting Commander Neil Paterson said both men had extensive criminal histories of violence and sexual offences.

It is the second time Byrnes has escaped from the facility.

Corrections Victoria Commissioner Jan Shuard said Corella Place was designed to ensure authorities could monitor sexual offenders upon their release from prison.

“This is not a secure facility. It is not a prison. They are not contained at this facility,” she told reporters in Melbourne on Thursday.

“They are electronically monitored, supervised by staff and accounted for.”

Last month, Corrections Minister Edward O’Donohue announced residents at the facility would be made to wear upgraded GPS devices, to be rolled out from July this year.

The men were wearing radio anklets that informed authorities they had left the grounds of Corella Place.

  1. Sex offenders don’t magically get cured with a stint in gaol despite treatments and therapies and moving into nice prison villages
    There are a small percent if Australians who are sex offenders and a lot more people who are are at risk from them- kids families and children of victims etc etc
    Where is the economic sense in trying to cure sex offenders, when on their release they reoffend ? More victims pain disability etcetc .
    Too often these germs get out and reoffend .adrian bayley showed us all how it’s done . Just lie your way out of gaol and therapy
    Pity the magistrates don’t get it when setting minimum terms, one strike and your out should be the rule
    These jerks are better locked up with free tv and courses and meals and supervised meds, they will be better off and so will we
