Subject: RELEASED LEVEL 3 SEX OFFENDER, 3000 Block of 5th Ave S, Central Neighborhood: Andre Benjamin Stigger
Hello from John B. We have learned that released Level 3 sex offender Andre Benjamin Stigger is now living on the 3000 block of 5th Ave S in the Central neighborhood.
Stigger has a history of sexual contact, including sexual touching and penetration, with a male child he knows. This happened in 1994. He has served his court sentence and was released from custody on 11/21/19. His sentence has expired. He is not wanted by police at this time.
Level 3 sex offenders are those determined by the MN Department of Corrections as being most likely to offend again. We are notifying the community of Stigger’s location pursuant to Minnesota Statute 244.052. This is meant to provide information, not increase fear.
Please note that neither the Minneapolis Police Department nor Hennepin County Corrections decide where released Level 3 sex offenders will live.
More details are attached and reprinted below. If you have questions about this process, call MPD Sex Crimes at 612-673-3932. Please contact me at john.baumann if you want information about other Level 3 sex offenders in your area or personal safety information.
This message and the attachment are public information, so feel free to post this notice and spread the word.
Thanks for your interest.

Minneapolis Bike Tour is Moving!
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board will not host the Minneapolis Bike Tour in September 2020. The Bike Tour is moving to May 2021, to grow and expand the event. The new date is yet to be determined, but we look forward to sharing details in the coming months. Part of this move will allow us to coincide with Minneapolis Bike Month, create new partnerships and kick off the riding season each spring!
We will continue to update our website throughout the next 3-6 months.
We hope to see you in May of 2021! Thanks for your continued support of the Minneapolis Bike Tour!
Check out draft recommendations for Parks for All, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board Comprehensive Plan, during Virtual Park Summit May 26-June 2!
During weeklong online event, public invited to review and ask questions about draft policy recommendations that will guide parks and recreation in Minneapolis for the next decade
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MRPB) is excited to announce the Parks for All Virtual Park Summit, a weeklong series of online activities, events and conversations designed to share and collect feedback on draft policy recommendations that will set MPRB priorities and policy direction for the next decade.
What is Parks for All?
“Parks for All” is the MPRB 2021 Comprehensive Plan, which will guide everything done by the organization over through the next decade. It articulates why the MPRB exists, identifies how the MPRB performs its work, and describes what the MPRB hopes to become.
Since Parks for All launched in 2019, the MPRB has collected an enormous amount of community feedback from Park Dream Boxes placed in every recreation center, online surveys, text messages, in-person events and advisory groups like the Community Advisory Committee, Youth Design Team, focus groups, seven topical Workgroups, and a Community Collaborators program.
How can I participate in the Virtual Park Summit?
Originally scheduled as a daylong, in-person event, the Park Summit shifted online to accommodate the need for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s something happening every day between Tuesday, May 26 and Tuesday, June 2, so find something that works for you and get involved!
Here’s how to participate in the Park Summit:
- Check out the draft policy recommendations online beginning May 26. They will be available as videos and written recommendations on the Virtual Park Summit webpage.
- Share your thoughts on connections, gaps and differences in an online survey or community comment board, which will be available on the Virtual Park Summit webpage when the summit opens.
- Attend a virtual office hours session via Zoom or Facebook Live with MPRB staff to ask questions, share thoughts or learn more about the Parks for All process. Links will be available on Virtual Park Summit webpage and Parks for All Facebook page when the summit opens.
- Join the Parks for All Virtual Listening Session on Tuesday, June 2, 5-7 pm to share your thoughts with other park users, the workgroups, the Community Advisory Committee, MPRB commissioners, project staff, or the Youth Design Team. The listening session will be held via Zoom and Facebook Live; links available on Virtual Park Summit webpage when the summit opens.
