Linked to other assaults?

Police in B.C. and Alberta are investigating whether a man convicted in a Fort St. John sexual assault may have been connected to similar unsolved cases.

Randolph Byron Dunlop, 60, of Grande Prairie, Alta., was found guilty back in March of sexual assault with a weapon, break and enter to commit an indictable offence, and forcible confinement in relation to a 1994 attack in Fort St. John. He was sentenced to eight years in jail and a lifetime weapons prohibition.

Dunlop is said to have worn a mask and brandished a firearm when he broke into a woman's home, tied her up and sexually assaulted her. Phone lines to the home were also cut before he broke in.

He was convicted though DNA evidence linking him to the crime and was arrested in 2014. 

Fort St. John RCMP are now working with police in Alberta to see if Dunlop is associated to other similar unsolved investigations in that province.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8100.
