A warning has been issued about a violent sex offender and Surrey native who was released from prison Friday.

According to the B.C. Corrections Branch, Daniel Michael Perrault has a criminal history including break and enter and sexual assault, robbery, being unlawfully at large and failing to comply.

The 39-year-old has offended male and female strangers "in both an opportunistic and predatory manner" and has been known to use weapons during his crimes, said a notification from the corrections branch.

Perrault is 5'10" tall and weighs 300 pounds. He's aboriginal with blue eyes, grey hair, a beard and sometimes wears glasses. He plans to live in Vancouver.

Authorities say he will be closely monitored, but his 14 court-ordered conditions include not consuming or possessing alcohol or drugs or entering a liquor store, not having weapons and obeying a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

Anyone who witnesses him violating those conditions is urged to contact police.
