These three men are known as sexually violent predators and they've recently moved.

There are 11 sexually violent predators currently living in Colorado Springs. Anytime one of them moves, they have to alert police, but sometimes, the predators don't have an address to give them.

Daniel Murphy is homeless and told police he'll be staying in the area of Rio Grande and Wasatch in Colorado Springs.

Police told us Murphy was convicted of first-degree sexual abuse in 2000 in Suffolk County, N.Y. He’s also been convicted of harassment, forcible touching and failure to register as a sex offender in New York and in Colorado.

We talked with neighbors who didn't know.

"Honestly I'd rather not have him in my neighborhood," Rebecca Schauer said. “It's everywhere. It's not so rare or anything, these guys are out on the street everywhere so it is a little, like I said, unsettling, but you can’t be a prisoner in your home.”

"It's not too big of an issue for me myself, I’m more worried about my neighbors. That would be the bigger concern," David Lee added.

"It's a little disturbing, especially like you said, he's homeless, so my thought is he’d be wandering around all over the place...that's a concern too," Aracely Guillen said.

The other two sexually violent predators who've moved include Jerrell Jamil Evans and Jimmie Louis Lillie.

Evans was convicted of second-degree sexual assault in 2001 in El Paso County. He’s also been convicted of felony menacing, felony escape and possession of a controlled substance.

Lillie’s criminal history includes his conviction of sexual assault on a child in 2005 in El Paso County. He was also convicted of third-degree assault twice, felony theft twice, distribution of a controlled substance, possession/sale of a controlled substance, violation of a restraining order, misdemeanor theft and resisting arrest.

Both Evans and Lillie will be living at the Capri Motel on Platte near Circle in Colorado Springs.
