Police seek help locating armed and dangerous man following Welland stabbing

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 said in a media release that suspect Jason C. Smith, 43, of Port Colborne, went to the home around 3 a.m. on Friday “for the purposes of confronting the home owner regarding a personal dispute.”

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.
