PORTLAND —  Police are warning residents of a Brighton Avenue neighborhood about the return of a man with a history of indecent conduct and assaultive behavior.

Steven Ricci, 47, was released from the Cumberland County jail this morning.

Police consider Ricci a high risk for re-offending. Ricci is not required to register as a sex offender, but police said his history warrants notification the the community.

Officers distributed more than 100 fliers in the area, including to Hall Elementary School and Breakwater School, near Ricci’s home at 915 Brighton Ave.

The flier notes that Ricci has been diagnosed with mental illness and that his criminal history includes convictions for indecent conduct, violating conditions of release and engaging a prostitute. One of the incidents stemmed from him attempting to lure a teenage girl into his vehicle to have sex, according to the flier.

In Ricci’s most recent court case, he was convicted of indecent conduct for masturbating in front of a woman on a Fore River Sanctuary Trail last summer. He was sentenced to seven months in jail but was released early because of good behavior.

He will be on probation for one year and is subject to a dusk-to-dawn curfew.
