VANCOUVER - A Canada-wide warrant has been issued by Vancouver police for a sex offender who is believed to be travelling to Manitoba.
Police issued the warrant for Joseph Davis, who is 46, after he failed to report at his halfway house in the city.
A police news release says Davis is a four-time federal offender who served a four-year sentence for sexual assault, and is currently under a long-term supervision order.
The release says Davis sexually assaulted a real estate agent in Winnipeg after luring her to his home in 2007.
His record also includes a conviction in Manitoba in 2001 for assault causing bodily harm and forcible confinement of a female sex trade worker.
Police say Davis is believed to have left the Vancouver area and could be heading east to Manitoba in a grey, 2000, four-door Mercedes C230 with B.C. licence plate DE5 64E.
