Edmonton Police Service has released a statement to the public regarding the release of violent offender, 60 years of age, Bernard Jakubec.
EDMONTON | Disappointed to be back with another warning, but Edmonton Police Service has reason to believe that 60 year old Bernard Jakubec, who was recently released from Chilliwack, British Columbia, and is now residing in the Edmonton area, will re-offend.
His name is Bernard Jakubec, and he has a history of sexually assaulting male and female victims aged 14 and younger after having lured them into secluded areas. His risk of offending escalates if he is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Bernard Jakubec is described as:
- Height: 5’11”.
- Weight: 230 lbs.
- Eyes: Hazel.
- Hair: Brown.
He has been placed on a recognizance and will be monitored by Alberta Probation and the Behavioural Assessment Unit of the Edmonton Police Service.
The EPS wrote their public notice to warn Edmontonians about this potentially harmful man in an attempt to forewarn you, and asks that you do not take this as an invitation to engage in any form of vigilante action. The world needs less harm; not more.
Bernard has been placed on a series of court ordered conditions including:
- He must keep the peace and be of good behavior
- He shall not consume or possess alcohol or any controlled substance as listed in the Controlled Drug and Substances Act excluding prescription medication prescribed to him by a licensed physician or a dentist, and he can only consume prescribed medication in the dosage prescribed by the doctor or dentist.
- He shall not enter any bar, tavern, liquor store, beer and/or wine store, or business whose primary purpose is the sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages.
- He shall not attend within 300 metres of any park, playground, school ground, swimming area, daycare, recreation/community centre, library or any other place where children under the age of 16 can reasonably be expected to be present, including other places identified in writing by his probation officer except with the prior written permission of his probation officer.
- He must not seek, obtain or continue any employment, whether or not the employment is remunerated, or become or be a volunteer in any capacity, that involves being in a position of trust or authority towards persons under the age of 16 years.
- He is prohibited from using a computer system within the meaning of subsection 342.1(2) for the purpose of communicating with a person under the age of fourteen years.
Please take a second to share this article in an attempt to get the word out there with me. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry; especially when Edmonton Police explicitly state that this man is more than likely to commit another illegal act whilst residing in our city.
Always be sure to stay aware and safe while you’re out and about.
