A man wanted in the United States on murder, stalking, arson and home invasion charges, has been arrested in Toronto.

Peel Regional Police issued a news release on Friday indicating that a 25-year-old suspect wanted in connection with a homicide in Inkster, Michigan, had potentially fled to the Greater Toronto Area.

Police said Ali Mohamed Elatrache was considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Elatrache was arrested at a hotel in east-end Toronto on Saturday night.

Const. George Tudos said investigators had been told Elatrache was potentially somewhere in Peel Region. But police later found information that led them to the suspect in Toronto.

Tudos said Elatrache has been handed over to the Canadian Border Services Agency. Arrangements are being made to send him back to the U.S.
