Fort St. John RCMP say convicted rapist may be responsible for other assaults

Hugh Smith

Fort St. John RCMP say they are continuing to investigate a sex offender they say worked in the city in the 1990s.

In 1994, a woman in the city was assaulted by a complete stranger. A man had broken into the woman's home wearing a mask and brandishing a gun. He had also cut the phone lines so the victim couldn't phone for help. The man sexually assaulted the woman and fled, but left behind DNA.

Through DNA, police identified 60-year-old Randolph Byron Dunlop of Grande Prairie. He was arrested in 2014, and was convicted on March 23, 2018. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison and a lifetime prohibition on weapons.

Police say Dunlop may have had other victims in the city, and are asking anyone who has information to come forward. If you know anything about any unsolved cases that may have been committed by Dunlop, you're asked to call Fort St. John RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
