Niagara Regional Police are seeking the public’s help in locating an armed and dangerous man after he allegedly assaulted and stabbed a Welland resident at their home on Maureen Ave. near Donna Marie Dr. on Friday.

Police are seeking a warrant of arrest for Smith for aggravated assault; Police said they believe this to have been a “targeted attack.”

The NRP is asking anyone who sees the suspect or the pickup truck believed to have been involved – a black 2009 Dodge RAM – to call police right away.
