A convicted rapist with a history of cutting off his GPS tracking device will go in front of a judge Tuesday.

Investigators described 58-year-old Dennis Davis as a “dangerous sex offender” when he went missing late in September after removing his tracker.

Officers later got a tip about Davis’ whereabouts and arrested him in Portland’s Old Town area, charging him with methamphetamine possession and violating parole.

A few days later, investigators said a woman came forward saying Davis had assaulted her while police were searching for him.

He was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

Davis was convicted of rape, sodomy and kidnapping in 1993 and spent 22 years in prison, and when he got out in 2015, he started violating his parole right away.

Authorities said he failed to check in with his parole officers often and cut off his GPS ankle bracelet multiple times, leading to him being arrested 11 times since 2015.

He had been last released from custody just days before the incident in September after serving time for cutting off his tracker in July.
