In the interest of public safety, Edmonton police are issuing a warning about the release of David Hay, a convicted sexual offender.
Hay has been violent in the past, which has resulted in physical harm to his victims, which included several underage women. Police believe that he will commit another offence against someone once released.
Hay will be living in Edmonton and will be subject to a series of court-ordered conditions, including:
- He must live at a residence approved by his Supervisor and must not change that address until he has received written approval.
- He must abide by a curfew of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily, unless a varied time is approved in writing.
- He must not travel out of the City of Edmonton without written approval.
- He must not own weapons of any kind, including knives, bear spray or dog spray, firearms, ammunition, explosive material, or any weapons, whether homemade or otherwise.
- He must not consume intoxicating substances.
Police issued the warning after careful deliberation, believing it was in the public interest to inform the community.
Anyone with information on any potential breaches of Hay’s conditions is asked to contact EPS at 780-423-4567.
