Vancouver Police say a man who has a history of violent sexual crimes has failed to return to his halfway house, and is now wanted Canada-wide.
Forty-six-year-old Joseph Davis is a four-time federal offender and had most recently served a four-year sentence for sexual assault.
In 2007, he sexually assaulted a realtor in Winnipeg after luring her to his home; six years earlier, he was convicted of assault causing bodily harm and forcible confinement of a female sex trade worker.
Davis was staying at a halfway house in Vancouver and has failed to report as required.
It is believed that he has left the Lower Mainland and is heading eastbound toward Manitoba.
He could be driving a 2000 grey, four-door Mercedes C230 with BC plate DE5 64E.
