Sexual predator warning

Vancouver police are warning the public about a sexual predator with a high risk to reoffend.

Cameron Eugene Ratelle, 39, is living in Vancouver and poses a risk to the safety of young women, police say.

“Ratelle is a federal offender who has been convicted of a sexual assault against a person under the age of 18, as well as university women living on campuses in Ontario. The VPD was advised on Feb. 8 that he would be living at a Vancouver halfway house,” said Const. Jason Doucette.

The Corrections Canada has assessed Ratelle as a moderate to high risk for violent and sexual reoffending.

Ratelle is black, five feet eight inches tall, 160 pounds, with a stocky build, shaved head and brown eyes. He uses hearing aids. He is currently bound by his statutory release, which includes several conditions:

  • Not to go on the property of any educational institute or school (including university campuses)
  • Not to be in the presence of anyone under the age of 18 years of age without permission of parole officer
  • Abide by daily curfew from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m.

  • Not to possess, purchase or access pornography
  • Not to access any internet site or access any computer
  • Must reside at a community correctional centre or community residential facility

Anyone who sees Ratelle in violation of these conditions is asked to call 911.
