King County Sheriff’s Office and Issaquah School District officials reached out to parents Wednesday, because a registered sex offender is moving to May Valley.

The sheriff’s office is holding a sexual-offender notification meeting from 6:30-8 p.m. April 20 at Apollo Elementary School, 15025 S.E. 117th St., Renton.

The offender, Randall Eugene Berry, is moving to the 18800 block of Southeast May Valley Road. People living near Berry’s residence received mailers about the move.

Berry was charged with first-degree rape in 1984. Posing as an off-duty police officer with a fake badge, he used his vehicle’s headlights or emergency flashers to stop women who were driving alone, according to the sheriff’s office. He then told victims they had committed a traffic violation, or that they had defective vehicle equipment.
