Waterloo Regional Police are warning the public that a convicted sex offender now living in Kitchener is still a high risk to re-offend after completing his sentence.
Hayan Yassin was convicted in 2011 of sexual assault with a weapon, forcible confinement, sexual assault causing bodily harm, and kidnapping.

Police said he was released on parole in 2018, but was taken back into custody four months later for violating several conditions.
Yassin was released again on Monday and police believe the 34-year-old still poses a high risk to re-offend or breach the terms of his release.
“The WRPS is working with Correctional Services of Canada to monitor the terms of his release, including through electronic monitoring, but are seeking community assistance to help reduce the risk,” police said in a statement.
