Another violent sex offender has been released from prison, prompting the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) to issue a warning to the public.
The EPS believes that convicted sex offender Dwayne Kequahtooway, 53, will commit another violent offence in the Edmonton community where he is now residing.
A number of women and children have been victims of Kequahtooway’s violence. He has been known to seek out single mothers in an attempt to offend their daughters in the past. He has also lured young girls using online platforms.
Kequahtooway has a daily curfew and is not permitted to leave the city of Edmonton. Among his list of bail conditions, he must also refrain from being within 100 metres of any place where children are expected to be and cannot consume alcohol.
EPS believe that notifying the public will help citizens take any necessary precautions to avoid harm but don’t advocate for vigilante action.
He also goes by the names Dwayne Anderson and Dwayne Holliger and police describe him as having hazel eyes, brown hair, standing at 5’7” and 210 lbs.
This is the second public warning issued by EPS in recent days following the release of Michael Cardinal last week.
Michael Cardinal, 49, a convicted sex offender with numerous violent assault charges against women with ages ranging from 15 to 82 was released from jail over the weekend.
“Edmonton Police Service has reasonable grounds to believe he will commit another violent offence against someone while in the community,” wrote EPS in a release.
