Victoria police are warning the public – especially women – about a man who was recently released from prison.

Roger Dale Badour, 62, has criminal convictions of sexual assault with a weapon, forcible confinement and uttering death threats. He has a history of targeting women who are alone and befriending socially vulnerable women.

Badour is living in the Victoria area and is being monitored by both the Victoria Parole Office and the Victoria police high-risk offender officer.

Several conditions came with his release from prison, including not consuming alcohol or drugs, reporting all relationships with women to his patrol officer and residing in a parole office-authorized location.

His release from custody is a court-imposed long-term supervision order and expires in 2018. It follows a seven-year prison term for sexual assault.

Badour is 5’8″ and weighs 172 pounds. He has medium-length grey hair, blue eyes and a heart-shaped tattoo on his left shoulder.

Anyone who witnesses Badour violating the aforementioned conditions, contact the police (VicPD: 250-995-7654 or Saanich PD: 250-475-4321) and do not approach him.

People with additional information on Badour should contact Det. Shawn Robson at shawn.robson@vicpd.ca.
