KAMLOOPS – A warrant for a convicted rapist with former ties to Kamloops was rescinded July 29 after the man was at-large for five days.

Police issued the warrant for Donald Sabey, 48, after he left his halfway house in Vancouver. Sabey was arrested by the Vancouver Police Department’s high risk offenders unit. He was found at a home in the city and could now face additional charges for violating conditions of his release.

In 2006, Sabey was convicted of unlawfully confining a sex worker while he sexually assaulted her and whipped her with a belt before the woman escaped from his Kamloops home. He has since been labelled a high-risk offender.

“We consider him a high risk to reoffend sexually,” said Const. Brian Montague, a spokesperson with the Vancouver RCMP.

Sabey is currently being held in a federal institution.
