Cleveland man convicted of raping boy hasn't registered address since 2010

CLEVELAND - The Ohio Attorney General's office wants Cleveland-area residents to be aware of a sex offender who has not registered his address in more than two years.

Nathaniel Thornton, 31, was convicted of raping a boy in 2001 and is a sexually oriented offender, Attorney General Mike DeWine said.

His last registered address was on Lakeside Avenue in Cleveland in March 2010, but he is not currently living there. A warrant for his arrested was issued in October 2010 for failure to provide change of address.

Thornton is 6 foot 1, weights 182 pounds and has several distinctive tattoos, according to the attorney general's office. He has teardrop tattoos under each eye, Chinese letters on his right forearm and a faded skeleton on his left forearm.

Anyone with information on Thornton should call the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation at 855-224-6446 or the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office.
