Two Lower Mainland men involved in the beating of a man with autism at the Mississauga bus terminal are going to jail.

Parmvir Chahil and Jaspaul Uppal both pleaded guilty in February to aggravated assault and were sentenced on Monday (Nov. 2). They will also face probation for one year and have to adhere to a 10-year weapons ban and submit their DNA to a databank.

The two were among three men charged after a 29-year-old man with autism was attacked while sitting on the stairs of the Square One bus terminal in Mississauga, Ontario, on March 13, 2018.

The attack was captured on surveillance video when it occurred on March 13, 2018. It showed the three surrounding the victim at the station 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 attack video was widely viewed on TV and social media and helped lead to quick arrests after Peel Police asked the public for assistance. The men were eventually located at their homes in British Columbia after a nation-wide search.

NOTE: Video may be disturbing to some viewers.
