A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Surrey man that police say viciously attacked an autistic man near a Mississauga, Ont. shopping centre on March 13.
Peel Regional Police identified Ronjot Singh Dhami, 25, as one of three men captured on surveillance video at the City Centre Transit Terminal, which is in the parking lot of Canada’s second-biggest shopping centre, Square One. Dhami is wanted for one count of aggravated assault.
For six seconds, three men punched and kicked the 29-year-old victim who was sitting at the bottom of stairs in the bus terminal, putting on rollerblades. The victim was taken to hospital with a broken nose and cuts to his face.
Insp. Norm English said the circulation of the video of the attack and still photos of the trio to British Columbia “proved to be very beneficial” in identifying the first suspect. Police do not have the names of the other two men.
“They should be aware,” English said, “we’ll identify you and we’re coming for you.”
British Columbia court files show a man with the same name and a 1993 birthdate 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 Ronjot Singh 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.
Update (March 21): Police have identified a second suspect. A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for the arrest of Parmvir “Parm” Singh Chahil. He is also wanted for aggravated assault. 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. Police have not identified the third suspect, but he may go by the first name of Jason.
