City cops are alerting Calgarians about the release of a high-risk violent sexual offender into the city.


Edward Michael Waters, 42, is in the Calgary area after serving more than 14 years in federal prison for two counts of sexual assault and one count each of break and enter and sexual interference.

Police said Waters’ history of violent offences has been directed at people known to him, as well as strangers. He’s also been convicted of offences against children.

Although police said his pattern of offending escalates when he’s under the influence of drugs and alcohol, they’re warning the public to be aware and to protect themselves.

Waters is described as 5-foot-11, 176 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.
