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

The man is Robert C. Seldomridge, 28, who was convicted in 1998 for unlawful sexual contact and unlawful sexual intercourse.

Police emphasize that Seldomridge 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.

Seldomridge is a Tier III, or high-risk offender.

He is described as a white man, standing 5 feet 9 inches in height, weighing 256 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Seldomridge has a cross tattooed on his left shoulder and a pentacle on his right leg.

Anyone with information that Seldomridge 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 anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
