Vancouver police have issued a warning about a high risk sex offender moving to Vancouver.
Police say 56-year-old James Burrows has four convictions for sex assaults against elderly women, all aged 72-93 years old.
The VPD says he has been paroled on statutory release, and will be living in the city.
Back in 2002, the Globe and Mail released a disturbing report into his attacks, where he was accused of sneaking into a nursing home wearing a fake doctor’s name tag.
That’s when he snuck into the rooms of his victims, ranging in age from 72 to 93, and assaulted them in their beds.
He has been released on the following strict conditions.
- Not to associate with any person known to be involved in criminal activity
- Not to consume or possess alcohol or illegal drugs
- Not to enter any liquor store, beer and/or wine store, or business whose primary purpose is the sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages
- No contact directly or indirectly with any of his victims or their families
- Immediately report any attempts to initiate intimate sexual and non-sexual relationships with females to his parole supervisor
- Not to purchase, acquire, possess, or access pornography or sexually explicit material in any form or type of media
Anyone who sees him violate these conditions is asked to call 911.
