Hamilton Police said the man wanted in connection to the fatal stabbing of 31-year-old Christopher David Sim outside of a downtown shelter in August has been arrested.

In a Tweet, police said 23-year-old Jheidohn Shakeed Serieaux was arrested Sunday morning (Oct. 3) in Brantford in connection to the case. He was taken into custody after police were called to a McDonalds restaurant, and now faces a charge of first-degree murder.

“Employeess called police for a male that was refusing to leave,” Hamilton Police Service stated in an email to the InTheHammer. “Brantford police arrested the male under the trespass to property act. The male continued to provide a false name and investigation led to the positive identification and subsequent arrest of Jheidon Serieaux for first-degree murder.”

Serieaux is expected to appear in a Hamilton court soon to answer to the charge.

The arrest comes nearly two months after Sim was stabbed following an altercation in the parking lot of Mission Services at 325 James St. North just before noon on Aug..

Paramedics rushed Sim to Hamilton’s General Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Early in the investigation, Serieaux, of no fixed address, was identified as the main suspect.
