As a result of the ongoing investigation by detectives from the Niagara Regional Police Service, police are seeking a Canada Wide Warrant for the arrest of Justin Kuijer.
The warrant for Kuijer will be for the attempted murder of a RBC bank employee on March 17, 2017 and for 1st Degree Murder in relation to the death of 7-year-old Nathan Dumas.
Reports say Dumas was Kuijer’s stepson.
Niagara Police officials say Kuijer should be considered armed and dangerous.
“Should a member of the public observe or know the location of Kuijer, do not approach him. Call 911,” Niagara Police officials say.
When Kuijer fled the scene of the RBC bank located on Martindale Road in St. Catharines he was driving a dark grey 2009 Pontiac Montana van, Ontario licence #BYTE392.
On the rear driver’s back window was a pink floral tribute sticker in relation to missing person “Ashley Simpson”.
The public should be reminded that the decal can be removed and they should not limit their attention to just that feature of the van.
Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Kuijer or the van should contact their local police service by calling 911.
