According to police, the attacker had a verbal fight with the two victims before things got physical and the 30-year-old was stabbed repeatedly in the upper body.

The suspect fled, but returned to the business shortly after and stabbed the 54-year-old victim several times as well, before fleeing in a vehicle.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the suspect, who was on statutory release at the time.

Police located and arrested a suspect outside of his home Wednesday night.

Kristopher Derek Watt, 39, faces charges of second degree murder and attempted murder, and remains in custody.
