Former Abbotsford man pleads guilty to 2018 assault in Ontario of man with autism

Parmvir Chahil, along with Jaspaul Uppal, to be sentenced in June for aggravated assault

Two Lower Mainland men, including one formerly from Abbotsford, who were charged in relation to the 2018 unprovoked assault of a man with autism in Mississauga, Ont., have now pleaded guilty.

The sentencing hearings for Parmvir Chahil and Jaspaul Uppal are scheduled for June 16 in the Superior Court of Justice in Brampton, Ont.

Both were charged with aggravated assault after a 29-year-old man with autism was attacked while sitting on the stairs of the Square One bus terminal in Mississauga on March 13, 2018.

Chahil and Uppal, both 21 at the time, along with Ronjot Dhami of Surrey, surrounded the victim and punched and kicked him several times before walking away.

The victim suffered a broken nose and facial cuts, police said at the time.

The first man to be identified was Dhami, then 25, but he didn’t turn himself in to police until March 26, 2018.

Dhami later pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated assault, and was sentenced in November 2018 to time served and two years’ probation.

Chahil, who has strong ties to Abbotsford, was the second person identified, and he was arrested on March 23, 2018 in Windsor, Ont.

Uppal turned himself in to the Abbotsford Police Department in late-May of that year, and was transferred back to Ontario.

Chahil was believed to have been the target of a 2015 drive-by shooting in Abbotsford that killed innocent man Ping Shun Ao, 74, when he was struck by a stray bullet. Chahil was Ao’s next-door neighbour on Promontory Court.

No one has been charged in relation to Ao’s killing.
