      A 46-year-old man convicted of several sexual assaults in the late 1990s was arrested for violating court-ordered conditions after his release from prison.

      According to Surrey RCMP, in 1997, Earon Wayne Giles had received a 22-year sentence after being convicted for six counts of break-and-enter and sexual assaults against women in Surrey.

      Surrey RCMP had issued a public warning about Giles, who was deemed a high risk for re-offense, when he was been released on conditions from prison on May 24, 2019 and was living in Surrey.

      This year, B.C. Corrections contacted Coquitlam RCMP around 10:15 p.m. on February 2 to report that Giles wasn’t at his court-approved address in Surrey and had violated his curfew, according to Coquitlam RCMP.

      Shortly thereafter, officers arrested Giles at a residence in the 1300 block of Pinetree Way in Coquitlam.

      Giles was found with an adult woman he knew and was allegedly carrying in violation of his conditions.

      On February 3, the B.C. Prosecution Service approved three counts of breaching conditions.

      Giles was released from custody on February 4 on seven additional conditions, including a stipulation that he must live at a Surrey address and have electronic monitoring.  

      Giles is described as being 180 centimetres (five-feet, 11-inches) tall and weighs 83 kilograms (183 pounds). He has brown hair and brown eyes.

      His conditions as of May 24, 2019, include:

      1. keeping the peace and being of good behavior;
      2. remaining within British Columbia, unless prior written permission is obtained from the court;
      3. no contact, direct or indirect, with any of the victims of the offences for which he was convicted or any known members of their immediate families;
