Notorious sex offender back in jail
The notorious serial rapist who took up residence in Kamloops earlier this spring is back behind bars for the time being.
Jack Samuel Froese has been residing with family in a Valleyview home since his release from prison on May 15.
The 31-year-old, has a history of committing violent sexual assaults, is expected to appear in Kamloops provincial court on Thursday (July 7).
He was arrested on Monday night (July 4) without incident at the home he's been living in.
Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said the arrest came after Froese allegedly missed a curfew check on Friday (July 1).
"Police had to confirm with the Kamloops probation office on Monday morning that the man had not been granted permission by a probation officer to be away from his designated residence during the period when the curfew check was conducted," he said.
Froese has a lengthy criminal record, including two convictions relating to violent sexual assaults.
In 2003, he drunkenly attempted to rape an acquaintance after she turned down his sexual advances.
In 2004, while living in Saskatoon, he raped a hotel worker at knife-point for 25 minutes. He was later arrested on the campus of the University of Saskatchewan, carrying a list of female athletes and cheerleaders at the school.
Froese is presently under conditions barring him from drinking, using drugs, accessing pornography or being in possession of weapons, disguises and restraint devices.
He is also bound by a 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew and barred from contacting any of his previous victims or entering "a private residence, dormitory, hotel, inn or other building where persons sleep or reside," according to police.
Monday marked the second time Froese was arrested for an alleged breach of conditions since moving to Kamloops.
On May 17, he was picked up after an acquaintance told police he saw Froese using drugs.
He was released on bail in May and is scheduled to stand trial on that breach charge in September.
He was slated to make his first court appearance on the latest charge today (July 5), but had his matter adjourned until Thursday.
He remains in custody.
