Three men wanted by police in Mississauga, Ont. for brutally attacking an autistic man are believed to be from British Columbia, theBreaker has learned.
The 29-year-old victim was at the bottom of stairs in the bus station next to Square One Shopping Centre on the evening of March 13.
While he was putting on rollerblades, three South Asian males came down the stairs and began to punch and kick him.
The victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries, including a broken nose and cuts to his face. The whole attack, which lasted approximately six seconds, was captured on surveillance video.
The suspects are all South Asian males, about five-foot-10, wearing casual clothes.
Insp. Norm English said social media attention to the “cowardly attack” has led to “credible information that the persons responsible are from B.C., specifically the Lower Mainland area. Also they recently travelled to the Greater Toronto Area.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Peel Regional Police at (905) 453-3311 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
