David Flavell - Repeat Sex Offender - STRIKES AGAIN

A notorious Level 3 sex offender with more than a dozen sex crime charges on his record was arrested after he tried to rape a woman at Massachusetts General Hospital yesterday, badly injuring her in the process, police said.

David Flavell, 40, who is homeless, is expected to be arraigned today in Boston Municipal Court for assault with intent to rape.
Police and sources said Flavell apparently followed a woman into a bathroom at the hospital and assaulted her. Police said the woman was injured but did not specify the nature of the injuries.
The scenario was chillingly familiar.

Flavell was charged with accosting a woman after cops said he followed her into a bookstore restroom in Braintree in 2008 and blocked the door with a bookcase, but fled when the woman screamed for help. Police said he had a backpack with a ski mask and duct tape. The disposition of that case was not available last night.
In 2006, Bristol County prosecutors tried to have Flavell declared a sexually dangerous person. But Judge Richard T. Moses disagreed and allowed him to go free.
Not long after, Flavell was charged by Boston cops with making lewd calls to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in which he allegedly claimed to have repeatedly molested a little girl in 2007. The case was dismissed when a key witness backed out.

With more than 12 years of police reports to go by, psychiatrists have described Flavell as an exhibitionist. He has been arrested several times for exposing himself and masturbating in public. In Salem, N.H., he was bagged in a Kmart, where he was accused of pleasuring himself with children’s clothes in 1996. He got a suspended sentence.
