Homicide detectives say they are searching for a man wanted in connection with the murder of his 56-year-old father who was found suffering from severe injuries at a home in Stoney Creek on Saturday night. 

In an updated news release issued Sunday afternoon, police released an image of 22-year-old Sukhaj Cheema-Singh, who is wanted for first-degree murder after his father was found with severe injuries at a home in Stoney Creek on Saturday night.

Police said the victim, who has been identified as 56-year-old Kuldip Singh, was discovered at a home near Trafalgar Drive and Mud Street at around 7:40 p.m. Saturday. He was rushed to hospital but later died from his injuries, police said.

Witnesses told officers that the male suspect fled the residence after an altercation with the victim.
