Police say a man wanted in a South Korean murder case may be hiding out in Toronto.

The force's fugitive squad says Ki Yeung Jaung, 42, of South Korea, is accused of killing a man in that country on Feb. 6.

Investigators say they believe he arrived in Vancouver the next day and has since made his way to Toronto, where he has family living in the Yonge Street and Finch Avenue area.

Police are asking for the public's help in finding him, but warn he is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

They say the force has been working with Interpol and an international warrant has been issued for Jaung's arrest.
