A 25-year-old man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with a violent attack on an autistic man at a bus terminal in Mississauga, Ont., turned himself in to police on Monday.

Ronjot Singh Dhami, whose last known address was in Surrey, B.C., is the second of three suspects arrested by police in the attack that was caught on video back on March 13. He has been charged with aggravated assault.

“This morning, he himself surrendered to Peel Regional Police,” Const. Harinder Sohi said. “He attended 21 Division in the City of Brampton. He was arrested and taken into custody.”

A 29-year-old man with autism was putting on roller blades when police said three men came and began to attack him.

The trio can be seen in surveillance video kicking and punching the victim before walking away.

On Friday, 21-year-old Parmvir Singh Chahil was arrested in Windsor, Ont., and was charged with one count of aggravated assault.

Dhami’s lawyer said last week that his client is not guilty and had planned to turn himself in.

B.C. court records show Dhami has a detailed criminal past that includes assault with a weapon and traffic violations.

He was convicted for assault with a weapon in 2011. He also has traffic violations dating to between 2012 and 2014.

The third person allegedly involved in the incident has not yet been positively identified, but police say he might go by the first name of Jason.

“We’re asking people to take a look at that video again. It’s thanks to that video being released and all the assistance we got over social media and everything that led to these two being arrested,” Sohi said.

Anyone who may have information concerning the case is urged to contact 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-2121 ext. 1233 or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
