Vancouver Police are warning the public in response to the release of a sex offender who plans to live in Vancouver.

Brendan Dominic Billy was released from prison on Monday after completing his full 15-year-sentence for break and enter and committing sexual assaults on two elderly women in the Squamish area in 2001.

He is now under the supervision of a provincial probation officer and plans to call Vancouver home, police said.

Despite his release, Corrections Canada has assessed him as “high-risk” for violence and sexual re-offending.

Billy is described by police as a “43-year-old indigenous man, 5’7″ and approximately 180 lbs. He has short, dark, spiked re-ceding hair line and the name “Lorna” tattooed on the right side of his neck.”

As part of his release, police said Billy must abide by a number of conditions. These include:

  • Not to be on the property of any facilities where seniors are likely to congregate or reside, such as retirement homes, complexes or recreational facilities
  • Not to be outside his residence between 10pm and 6am daily
  • Advise of any close or intimate relationships and inform those persons of his criminal record
  • Not to consume or possess alcohol or any controlled substances
  • Not to enter any liquor, beer, and/or wine store
  • Not possess, own or carry any weapon or be in the possession of any knives

Anyone witnessing Billy in violation of any of these conditions is asked to contact their local police department by calling 911.
