VANCOUVER — A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a man police say allegedly committed new crimes this week while on statutory release for a manslaughter conviction.
Vancouver Police allege the suspect assaulted and threatened another person on Saturday.
Emile Williams, who is 33, had been living at a Vancouver halfway house.
He was sentenced for manslaughter in 2013.
In addition to the Canada-wide warrant for breach of Corrections and Conditional Release Act, Williams also has B.C.-wide warrants for assault and uttering threats.
Police say he has a violent history, and anyone who sees him or has information on his whereabouts should immediately call 911.
