MONTREAL -- The Laval police department (SPL) is asking for the public's assistance in locating a man charged with sexual assault who violated conditions and is at large.

An arrest warrant was issued for Kevin Scott, 29, on Oct. 19 for breach of conditions in connection with sexual assault and death threat charges from Aug. 2020.

He was ordered to remain in a drug rehab centre while awaiting trial, but allegedly violated court-ordered conditions and fled the centre Oct. 17, according to an SPL news release issued Thursday.

Police say he may be in the Laval or Saint-Jerome regions.
