Police are warning Calgarians about the release of an inmate into the city who poses a “significant risk” to the public.

Police say Curtis Dale Hill, 30, served a 10-year federal sentence for seven armed robberies and was released in Edmonton, but he has since moved to Calgary where he will be monitored by the high-risk offender program.

“The public is warned that (Hill) is an individual who has criminal convictions for offences against both females and males for personal gain,” police said in a statement.

“Hill is both predatory and opportunistic and uses violence to achieve his goals. He is particularly violent toward authority figures.”

Hill also served time for break and enter, theft, possession of stolen property, assault, attempt to escape custody, uttering threats, contempt of court, assaulting a peace officer and unlawfully causing bodily harm.

He is described as Caucasian, five feet 11 inches tall and 150 pounds with brown shaved hair, green eyes and a fair complexion. He often wears glasses.
