Peel Regional Police say they have now made an arrest in connection to a sword-swinging Brampton brawl that took place on August 28.
Harjot Singh, a 25-year-old man from Woodstock, was arrested on Monday and charged with two counts of assault with a weapon.
The fight broke out at 1:30 am in a parking lot at McLaughlin Road and Steeles Avenue West, near Sheridan College — and it was caught on video. In the video, you can see an individual swinging a sword at others.

Singh is scheduled to appear in Brampton court on November 2.
