Police have identified the third suspect in an assault on a man with autism at a Mississauga, Ontario, transit terminal on March 13. That suspect is Jaspaul Uppal, 21, of no fixed address. Uppal is now wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for one count of aggravated assault.

Police released a video of the attack in March to solicit help from the public in identifying the suspects. The clip showed three people surrounding and beating a man sitting on a staircase who appeared to be putting rollerblades on. The three walked down the stairs, then immediately started kicking and punching the victim

From the video, it wasn’t clear what—if anything—provoked the attack. The suspects quickly left the scene.

The victim, 29, was taken to the hospital following the attack. His physical injuries were serious but not life-threatening.

Two others have been charged in the incident already. Parmvir Singh Chahil, 21, of no fixed address, and Ronjot Singh Dhami, 25, of no fixed address, are facing one count of aggravated assault each.
