Police in Ontario say they believe that at least one of three men who beat up a man with autism in the greater Toronto area could be from the Lower Mainland.
Peel Regional Police say the assault happened at the Square One bus terminal in Mississauga on March 13 at about 10:45 p.m.
The 29-year-old man was sitting at the bottom of the stairs of the terminal’s lower level when three men approached.
The suspects surrounded him and “continued to punch and kick the male multiple times” before fleeing.
The man was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
“We believe at least one might be from British Columbia,” said Const. Iryna Yashnyk. “We’re hoping to get the video out there in case somebody might recognize them.”
