Convicted “sadistic” rapist Marcellus Norman Jacob is back in custody after three days on the lam.
Jacob turned himself in to a downtown Vancouver parole office at around 4 p.m. Wednesday, said Vancouver police spokesperson Howard Chow on Thursday.
Police were called and Jacob was apprehended without incident.
The Correctional Service of Canada issued a Canada-wide warrant on Sunday, after Jacob failed to return to his Vancouver-area halfway house.
When Jacob was 21, he broke into a Whitehorse woman’s home through a kitchen window and, for more than six hours, repeatedly raped, tortured and assaulted her in a “brutal and sadistic fashion,” according to a National Parole Board report.
For that crime, Jacob was sentenced to seven years in prison for break-and-enter and sexual assault with a weapon.
He’d served 4.5 years of that sentence when he was released to a halfway house on October 27.
