Peel police say they’ve arrested the third suspect in connection with a brutal attack on a man with autism.

They said 21-year-old Jaspaul Uppal turned himself in to Abbotsford police after a Canada-wide warrant was issued last week and has since arrived back in the Peel region.

Uppal is the third and final suspect wanted for the assault that occurred in a Mississauga bus terminal on March 13.

The victim, a 29-year-old man with autism, was attacked while sitting on the lower-level stairs in the bus terminal at Square One.

Police later released a disturbing surveillance video in which the three suspects can be seen kicking and punching the victim before walking away.

The victim was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
