High-risk sex offender banned from central Island, living in Vancouver: police

John Ambrose Seward, 33, has been released from prison under a number of conditions

Police warn that a convicted sex offender who “poses a significant risk to women” will be living in Vancouver.

John Ambrose Seward, 33, is currently serving a 10-year long-term supervision order for sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon and aggravated assault.

Seward has been released from prison under a number of conditions, which include a ban on buying or possessing alcohol or drugs, going to parks or visiting areas of central Vancouver Island including Ladysmith, Parksville and Nanaimo.

He must also report all women or girls he is in contact with to his parole supervisor.

Seward was arrested in Nanaimo in 2015 hours after being released from prison for violating his conditions.
