Delaware State Police are advising Dover residents of a homeless sex offender who is living somewhere in the metropolitan area.

The man is Tykeme T. Robinson, 21. Robinson was convicted in 2005 of fourth-degree rape where the victim was less than 11 years of age.

Police emphasize that Robinson is not wanted for any crime; state law requires police to notify area residents when a known sex offender is living in their neighborhood. Law enforcement officials use the media to notify the entire community when a sex offender is listed as homeless.

Robinson is a Tier II, or moderate risk offender.

He is described as a black man, standing 6 feet 3 inches in height, weighing 215 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on both hands and on his neck.

Anyone with information that Robinson is occupying a residence in the Dover area is asked to call (302) 672-5306, or use the Delaware State Police Mobile Crime Tip Application available at www.delaware.gov/apps.

Information also may be provided to Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333. Information also may be provided via the Internet at www.tipsubmit.com. Send an an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
