Police in Vancouver are warning that a sex offender who poses a risk of "significant harm" to women will be living in the city.

Skylar Wayne Pelletier, 24, has been convicted of sexual assault, assault, and break-and-enter, the Vancouver Police Department said in a statement Monday.

Pelletier is described as 6’2” tall with a "heavy build," black hair and brown eyes.

He is currently bound by the conditions of a long-term supervision order which include:

  • he cannot consume, purchase or possess alcohol or drugs;
  • he cannot associate with the victim or members of the victim’s family;
  • he must report all contacts with women or girls to his parole supervisor;
  • he must reside at a designated facility;
  • he must abide by a 6 p.m. curfew;
  • he cannot go to Salish Park in Chilliwack;
  • he must take all prescribed medication.

Police are asking anyone who sees him breaching these conditions to call 911 immediately. The VPD issued a similar warning about Pelletier in 2021.
