Vancouver police issued a warning to the public Thursday about a man they say is a repeat sex offender who poses a significant risk to women.

Randolph George Aubichon, 39, now lives in a halfway house in the city after serving two-thirds of his eight-year sentence for sexually assaulting a woman, Vancouver police said in a news release.

Aubichon sexually assaulted the victim after breaking into her home. The crime was committed two days after he was released following a four-year federal sentence for another sexual assault and break-and-enter, police said.

"In that [earlier] incident, a 50-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in the kitchen of her home," police said. "When her frail husband tried to come to her defence, he was also assaulted."

Aubichon is described as aboriginal, five feet nine inches tall and 200 pounds. He has a scar on his face and tattoos on his chest and his left and right arms.

He must abstain from all kinds of alcohol, live in a correctional residential facility, and report all relationships with females to his parole officer.

Police are asking the public to call 911 if they see Aubichon violating any of the conditions of his release.
