The Surrey man wanted for aggravated assault on an autistic man near Toronto applied for an Ontario driver’s licence before the attack, according to a source in Ontario.
On March 13, three men were captured on surveillance video in a bus station next to the Square One Shopping Centre. At the bottom of stairs, they kicked and punched a man who was putting on rollerblades. The 29-year-old victim suffered a broken nose and facial cuts.
A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the arrest of 25-year-old Ronjot Singh Dhami of Surrey. His lawyer, Jag Virk, told Toronto media that his client was innocent and would turn himself in to police next Monday.
Co-assailant Parmvir Singh Chahil, a 21-year-old from Abbotsford, is also subject to a Canada-wide warrant. Police do not have the identity of the third man, who they believe is named Jason.
British Columbia court files show a Ranjot Singh Dhami, born in 1993, has several Motor Vehicle Act violations, an August 2011 conviction for assault with a weapon in Surrey and a June 2014 arrest in Kelowna on charges of possession for the purpose of drug trafficking.
In December 2016, a Provincial Court judge ruled that Dhami’s arrest was unlawful. Judge Peter Rogers, however, said in his ruling “there is no doubt” that, while in police cells, Dhami expelled 23 bags containing crack cocaine, 23 bags of fentanyl and seven bags of heroin from his rectum.
Chahil was believed to be the target of a 2015 drive-by shooting in Abbotsford, an incident that ended in the death of an innocent 75-year-old neighbour, Ping Shun Ao.
