Vancouver police are warning the public about a high-risk offender who will be living in the city.
57-year-old James Burrows is a federal offender, convicted of four disturbing sexual assaults against women aged 72-93.
The force issued a similar warning about Burrows when he was released into Vancouver back in March.
Vancouver Police said after his March release Burrows was “returned to custody,” but says it does not have information as to why.
Global News reports Burrows was convicted in 2002 of breaking into a Toronto nursing home and assaulting four elderly women.
During his trial, the court heard he was trying to feed an addiction to crack cocaine and was arrested carrying a Playboy magazine.
A Correctional Service assessment found Burrows to be at high risk to re-offend, with a particular risk to the safety of elderly women.
Burrows is described as black, 6’1” tall weighing 260 lbs., with a black hair and brown eyes.
He is being released under the following 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 break any of these conditions is asked to call 9-1-1.
