The Abbotsford Police Department has issued a public notice about the release from prison of a man with a violent criminal history.

Kenneth Courtney Breckenridge, 49, was released from prison today and will be living in the Abbotsford area.

He has prior convictions for assault, assault with a weapon, sexual assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement and failing to comply with court orders.

Const. Ian MacDonald said Breckenridge’s victims have often been his domestic or common-law partners.

“Police fear the potential for (him) to re-offend, particularly in the context of an intimate relationship,” MacDonald said.

Breckenridge’s court-ordered conditions include that he not leave the province, not possess any weapons and to advise his probation officer of all close intimate or familial relationships and refrain from continuing those relationships until those people have been advised of his criminal record.

Anyone who sees Breckenridge violating those conditions is asked to call their local police agency immediately. In Abbotsford, the number is 604-859-5225, or text abbypd (222973).

Breckenridge is six foot one, weighs 175 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.
