An inmate was released into the Calgary area and police have issued a public warning in the interest of public safety.
Henri Jean Rusk, 52, served a three year federal sentence for sexual assault and is now being monitored by the Calgary Police Service High Risk Offender Program on a Recognizance Order.
Police say Rusk has a history of violent and sexual offences and his previous sexual assault convictions were committed against strangers or women he met by chance.
Rusk’s danger level may be increased when he is intoxicated by alcohol and/or drugs and he has used several aliases in the past including Frank John Bothorel, Francios Jean Edward Bothoreal, Henri John Allard and Henri Jean Allard.
Rusk is described as:
- 183 cm or 6 feet tall
- 91 kgs or 200 lbs
- Long grey hair
- Hazel eyes
- Facial hair
Calgary Police say they issued the information after careful deliberation and consideration of all related issues, including privacy concerns because they believe that it is clearly in the public interest to inform the members of the community of Rusk’s release.
