High-risk sex offender living in Vancouver prompts warning from police
VPD says Randall Peter Hopley now living in Vancouver a high risk to reoffend
A convicted sex offender living in Vancouver poses a threat to the safety of young boys, according to the Vancouver police.
The VPD issued a public safety warning on Thursday, advising Vancouver residents that Randall Peter Hopley is living in the city and is considered a high risk to reoffend.
The 53-year-old was previously convicted of abducting a B.C. toddler in 2011. He has also been charged and convicted of sexual assault, assault and multiple break and enters in the past.
Hopley was released after serving a six year sentence on the abduction charges.
Despite having served his full sentence, Hopley is considered a high risk to reoffend either violently or sexually, according to corrections officials. He is currently under a supervision order that orders him to stay away from children.
He must also abide by a curfew.
Hopley is white, five feet nine inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.
Police say he often sports a beard.
They're asking anyone who sees him violating his supervision order to contact them.
