The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) has issued a warning to the public about 48-year-old Robert Major, a four-time federal offender who will be residing in the City of Vancouver.

Major has previously been convicted of multiple sexual assaults. Citing "compelling circumstances" to warn the public, the VPD says Major is at a "high risk for violent and sexual re-offending."

He is described as white, 5'11, and about 250 lbs. He has blue eyes and is balding with light brown hair on the side of his head, and has a goatee.

In their media release, the VPD outlined several conditions Major must abide by:

  • Not to consume, purchase, or possess alcohol
  • 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 with anyone 16 years of age or under
  • Not to attend public parks, public swimming areas, community centres, parks, youth centres or school grounds where persons age 16 years or under are present or can reasonably expected to be present
  • Curfew from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily

The Vancouver Police Department is asking anyone who witnesses Major in violation of any of those conditions to contact 9-1-1.
