A day after issuing an alert about a high risk sexual-offender moving to Kelowna, Mounties rescinded the notice.
Andrew Aurie Jefferson, a serial rapist who authorities have reason to believe will re-offend, fulfilled his prison sentence and was released last Thursday.
He was intending to make Kelowna his new home, but since decided to reside in Mission, B.C.
Jefferson, 26, fulfilled his sentence for a Calgary-based criminal history that included two convictions for sexual assault using knives in 2006, and another for physical assault the same year.
His pattern was to randomly grab women from behind as they were walking down the street. He threatened to kill them if they screamed, and used a knife to subdue them as he sexually assaulted them.
