A suspect involved in an unprovoked attack on a man with autism in Ontario has turned himself in to police.

Ronjot Singh Dhami, 25, surrendered to police on March 26, according Peel Police.

Dhami was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant after he and two other suspects viciously attacked a 29-year-old man with autism on Tuesday, March 13.  Police believed the suspects were from BC, and were visiting the GTA.

The 29-year-old victim was sitting on the stairs of the lower level of the bus terminal when he was approached by three male suspects. Police say the three males then surrounded the victim and continued to punch and kick the male multiple times.

The suspects then fled the scene. The victim was taken to local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say Dhami is charged with one count of Aggravated Assault. He will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on Monday, March 26 for a bail hearing.

On March 23, a second suspect, Parmvir ‘Parm’ Singh Chahil, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault.

Facing charges as an Accessory After the Fact as well are 18-year-old male, Harmanvir Chahil, and 44-year-old female Hardip Padda. Both have been released on a Promise to Appear before an Ontario Court of Justice in the City of Windsor on May 2, 2018.

The third male involved in this incident has not yet been positively identified, but may go by the first name of Jason.

Investigators are appealing for witnesses, or anyone who may have information concerning this investigation to contact 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at (905) 453-2121 Ext 1233.
