The search is over for an Ontario man accused of fatally injuring his seven-year-old stepson moments before attempting to kill a bank employee.
Niagara police Chief Jeff McGuire confirmed late Tuesday that 43-year-old Justin Kuijer was arrested by provincial police in Kenora, Ont., after a tip from a citizen.
A Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued Monday for Kuijer on charges of second-degree murder in the death of seven-year-old Nathan Dumas, as well as the attempted murder of a woman working at an RBC branch.
Police alleged that Kuijer had been on the run in his ex-girlfriend’s van ever since the two grisly scenes unfolded Friday.
The hunt continues for a 43 year-old man in the Niagara region who police says is armed dangerous.
The man is wanted for the first degree murder of his step-son and stabbing a woman in a bank.
A Canada-wide warrant has now been issued for Justin Kuijer. His seven-year-old stepson Nathan Dumas was found critically injured in a residence in St. Catharines on Friday morning. He died early Saturday.
Police allege that on Friday, Kuijer entered a Royal Bank branch, stabbed a female employee, and fled in a van.
Police say he fled last Friday and admit he has a healthy head-start.
He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached in any circumstance. If you see him, call 9-1-1 immediately.
