Vancouver Police have confirmed to Global News that the man known as the “Balaclava Rapist” will be serving his day parole at a correction halfway house in that city.
The 63-year old was serving three life sentences, having admitted to raping at least 30 women in Edmonton in the 1970’s and 80’s.
In 1984, Takahashi was convicted of 14 charges, including four counts of rape, sexual assault with a weapon, aggravated sexual assault and six counts of disguise with intent.
Late last month we heard that Larry Takahashi was considered a moderate-to-high risk to re-offend and would be granted day parole.
Takahashi will have to abide by a number of conditions while on parole, like following a strict curfew, abstaining from drugs, alcohol and pornography and must stay away from post-secondary institutions. (bw, with files from Global News)
