Flood shelter stalker faces new allegation

A SERIAL sexual predator who stalked a girl he met at a centre for flood victims has been detained after new allegations emerged.

Gordon Anthony Allwood was previously jailed after pleading guilty to unlawfully stalking a teenage girl.

The girl, aged 15, had gone to Gatton with her family to help victims of the catastrophic 2011 floods.

At Brisbane Supreme Court on Friday, Justice Martin Burns ordered Allwood be detained in custody.

The Supreme Court heard Allwood was accused of breaching supervision, and faced charges at magistrates court level.

NewsRegional has learned Allwood, now in his late 40s, is listed for a committal at Brisbane Magistrates Court on September 24 on 13 charges.

These charges include four of a sexual nature and nine of contravening an order.

In Queensland, jailed sex offenders, such as Allwood, who are due to be released can be placed on supervision orders, released on parole with supervision, or given continued detention.

In May 2012, Allwood was sentenced to two years in jail but with parole eligibility set for July 14 that year.

An Ipswich court that year heard Allwood had previous convictions for aggravated sexual assault and indecent treatment of boys.
