Community alerted to release of Calf-Child

University of Calgary Campus Security and Calgary Police Service have issued an alert to students over the release of high-risk offender Derek Ross Calf-Child on March 7.

On Nov. 24, 2007, a young woman was assaulted on campus after being followed by Calf-Child from a downtown LRT station. After she was thrown to the ground, punched and fondled, Calf-Child was chased and tackled by a U of C professor and security guard who heard the woman’s screams.

According to a Calgary Herald article published at the time, while in custody Calf-Child was recorded as saying he would go after the victim again if he were to see her on the train.

Calf-Child will be monitored by the high risk offender program for two years according to the CPS.

“Calf-Child has a lengthy history of criminal convictions dating back to 1983, including sexual assault, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon,” the CPS said in a press release.

Calf-Child is described as Aboriginal, 5′ 6″ tall, 170 lbs., with brown eyes, a dark complexion and black and grey hair.

Campus Security suggests students stay safe on campus by taking advantage of the Working Alone system and Safewalk, and staying aware of the approximately 160 emergency telephones.
