Murder suspect Daniel Paul has been arrested by Vancouver Police after one month on the run.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on April 1, VPD apprehended Paul after officers recognized him riding a bicycle on West Broadway near Yukon Street. He was taken into custody without incident.

Paul allegedly killed his 36 year-old girlfriend, Rose Paul, in March.

On March 3, the body of Rose Paul, mother of five daughters and Daniel Paul’s girlfriend, was found in the basement suite of a home on East 22nd Avenue near Main Street. Paul, 42, was quickly identified as the suspect.

On March 17, with Paul on the lam, VPD issued a warning to the public to be on the lookout for the suspect and offered a $10,000 reward for anyone who could turn him in.

“Daniel Paul remains on the run after numerous pleas by the police to have him turn himself in,” VPD spokesperson Sargeant Randy Fincham said. “Daniel is to be considered dangerous and anyone who knows his whereabouts is asked not to approach him and call 9-1-1.”

“This man is very dangerous,” said Howard Paul, Rose’s uncle. “He needs to be taken off the streets before he hurts or kills another woman. Rosie loved and trusted this man. He was supposed to protect her, but instead he took her life.”

It is currently unknown what charges Paul will face in court.
