A 36-year-old man with a history of threatening women and charged with sexually assaulting two women in south Edmonton will remain in jail.

Daniel Christopher Leonard was denied bail in an Edmonton courtroom Thursday.

Leonard was arrested on Jan. 20th after allegedly attacking two women near the University of Alberta.

Leonard, a Canadian citizen, had been deported to Canada from the United States last June after serving two years and four months in an American prison.

According to sentencing documents obtained by CBC News, Leonard was working as a human resources manager at a water park resort in Washington State when he began making thousands of harassing calls to women.

He disguised his voice and sexually threatened women, using an internet phone spoofing service to place his calls.

Last month he was given 18 months probation and a $50 fine for exposing himself to a woman.
