Man Wanted Canada Wide for Being Unlawfully at Large

Update: Arrested

Vancouver – Forty-six-year-old Joseph Davis is a four-time federal offender who has served a four-year sentence for sexual assault, and is serving a long-term supervision order. Davis is now wanted Canada-wide for violating that order and is currently unlawful at large.

In December 2007, Joseph Davis sexually assaulted a real estate agent in Winnipeg, Manitoba, after luring her to his home.

In 2001, he was convicted of assault causing bodily harm and forcible confinement of a female sex trade worker he invited to his residence.
