Kuijer's seven-year-old stepson, Nathan Dumas, was found critically injured inside an apartment in St. Catharines on Friday. Police did not immediately reveal the cause of death. He was discovered in the home by his mother Whitney Dumas. Our Niagara regional police are truly something to be proud of.

"The community is supporting us and they are providing us with information".

“He was the kindest little boy youd ever meet. “He was such an old soul.”.

Police warn that Kuijer is considered armed and risky and anyone who knows of his whereabouts should call 9-1-1 immediately. Niagara police spoke to the media at 8 a.m. Monday morning.

The woman was stabbed by a man who entered the bank. He was rushed to hospital but died from his injuries early Saturday morning.

"The circumstances that connect the Martindale Road location, the Queenston Street location and Justin Kuijer are evidentiary in nature", police said in a news release.

Her son's death has been a blow to their community, in the heart of Ontario's wine country, Gavin added.

Police now report the man is wanted for murder in the death of his stepson. Dumas said her son died Saturday morning. "She's working with us".

Nathan Dumas was a second year student at Harriet Tubman Public School in St. Catharines.

"I said to him, 'Well let's go inside and talk about arrangements for our kids.' We have three kids", Dumas said in an interview with The Standard. "They are there to support students, and the staff too. She is certainly supportive and we are doing what we can to protect her with Mr. Kuijer still outstanding", Gavin said.

Gavin alleges Kuijer attacked a woman at the bank that he knew in a professional capacity, but would not offer comment as to motive. He then fled. Police said the incident was not a robbery.

Initially treated at the St. Catharines site of the Niagara Health System, the woman was transported to a trauma centre outside of the Niagara region.

Kuijer was last seen in a grey 2009 Pontiac Montana van, with licence plate number BYTE 392. The decal references the name Ashley Simpson and "Missing Women of Canada".

Police later identified a possible suspect as 43-year-old Justin Kuijer. A sign on the RBC door said it would reopen Monday.

He is described as white with a thin build, trimmed beard and longer dark hair. The suspect was last seen wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt under a brown leather coat, dark trousers, a black toque and boots. They advised the public not to approach him if they see him and to call 911 instead.
