Convicted sex offender arrested on SkyTrain

By The Canadian Press

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. - A man who police say is a convicted sex offender is in custody after allegedly breaching the terms of his release.

Thirty-nine-year-old James William Conway of Surrey is charged with two counts of breach of recognizance and is due to appear in court April 23 to face the allegations.

He is accused of violating conditions stating he cannot contact anyone under 18 and that he is to carry a copy of his release order at all times outside his home.

Transit police say a SkyTrain passenger accused a man of behaving inappropriately towards young girls at Columbia Station in New Westminster.

Police issued a news release saying the witness alleged the man was staring at the girls, looking down the fronts of their skirts and attempting to talk with them by producing a teddy bear.

The police news release didn't provide details of Conway's conviction.
