Niagara Police say a 43-year-old man is wanted in connection with the death of his stepson and the attempted murder of a woman at a local bank. Justin Kuijer’s 7-year old stepson (Nathan Dumas) was found in a St. Catharines home critically injured Friday morning, and died in hospital the next day. Police allege that also on Friday, Kuijer entered a Royal Bank branch, stabbed a female employee, and fled in his dark grey van. (description below).
Police plan to issue a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest later today. They say he is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, do not approach him. Call 911 immediately. His vehicle has a plate number: BYTE 392. There is a pink floral decal on the back window of his dark grey van. It references missing person Ashley Simpson and Missing Women of Canada.
Kuijer was last seen wearing an orange hoodie under a brown leather coat, dark pants, a black toque, and boots, police said.
