Jaspaul Uppal turns himself in to police, will appear in Toronto-area court to answer a charge of aggravated assault

ABBOTSFORD (NEWS 1130) –  A third man has been arrested and charged in an apparently unprovoked assault on a man with autism in Mississauga.

Last week, a Canada-wide warrant was issued for 21-year-old Jaspaul Uppal. He turned himself in to police in Abbotsford over the weekend.

Uppal has been charged with aggravated assault and is appearing in court later today in the Toronto area.

In a video released by police back in March, a man is seen sitting at the bottom of a stairwell, putting on roller blades. Three young men approached him from behind and began to punch and kick him before running away.

The unidentified victim was left with a broken nose and cuts to his face.

Within two weeks of the March 13 attack, the two other suspects were arrested. Parmvir “Parm” Singh Chahil, 21, and Ronjot Dhami, 25, are also each charged with one count of aggravated assault.

Two other people have been charged with accessory after the fact.
