Police said Fash is living in the Edmonton area and that he has a “history of breaking and entering residences or other public buildings and sexually assaulting known or unknown adult females within.”

“Fash’s risk for violence and sexual violence increases with the consumption of drugs and alcohol,” police said.

According to police, the 40-year-old man currently has shoulder-length hair and a full beard. He is six-foot-one and weighs about 460 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
