Police Thursday issued a warning to the public about a high-risk sex offender living in a Vancouver half-way house.
Brian Keith Solberg, 67, was convicted of forcible confinement, sexual assault with a weapon and a number of other related offences. He served his sentence and was released on a peace bond, which included certain conditions, put in place as a preventative measure to protect the public. Solberg subsequently breached those conditions and is currently serving a four-year sentence.
He has been assessed at a high-risk of reoffending and poses a risk of significant harm to the safety od teenaged and adult women, including strangers and acquaintances.
Solberg is described as white, 5’11” tall and weighing 218 pounds with short, greying brown hair and blue eyes.
He has been released with a number of conditions, including:
- Report all friendships, sexual relationships and intimate relationships with women to his parole supervisor.

- Not to consume, purchase or possess alcohol or drugs.
- Not to enter any establishment where the primary source of income is the sale of alcohol.
