Police have issued a nationwide warrant for a hair stylist they believe to be armed and dangerous.

Toronto police say that Sepehr Yeganehfathollah, 25, is wanted for first-degree murder in connection to the death of a man stabbed several times with a machete in mid-September.

Police say the murder Yeganehfathollah is wanted in connection to took place in North York on September 19th.
