Edmonton Police Service is alerting the public of a violent and sexual offender who is going to be living in the Edmonton area.

Mohamed Abdulkadir is going to be released in Edmonton, and Edmonton Police Service says it has “reasonable grounds to believe he will commit another violent and/or sexual offence while in the community.”

Abdulkadir will be residing in the Edmonton area. The Edmonton Police Service is seeking a recognizance order on Abdulkadir and he will be monitored by the Behavioural Assessment Unit of the Edmonton Police Service.

The EPS believes that Abdulkadir is a risk to women that he does not know and comes upon in public.

According to EPS, Abdulkadir has sexually assaulted a vulnerable pre-teen girl, previously unknown to him, whom he saw in public.

As a result, Abdulkadir has been placed on a series of court ordered conditions, including a curfew, being restricted from the use of alcohol or drugs, being forbidden to be in the presence of any children under the age of 16 unless accompanied by a responsible adult who knows his criminal history, not travelling out of Edmonton without permission, and more.
