The community is relieved to know that the Peel Regional Police have made some serious headway in identifying and apprehending individuals responsible for a series of stick brawls that alarmed law-abiding residents of Brampton.
These individuals are believed responsible for the much-publicized viral videos of stick brawls that occurred at parking lots around Brampton since December 2017.
Although many in the community pin the blame on international students for this wave of violence, the police have refused to confirm it. The police have only gone so far as to say that the accused are all Brampton residents between the ages of 19 and 37. So far three have been arrested and charged, but arrest warrants have gone out for six others who are yet to be in custody.
These individuals are in Canada legally and are currently at various stages of the immigration process.”
As for now police aren’t sure what motivated these stick brawls or even if the victims were targeted or randomly attacked. Mercifully no one was seriously wounded.
The police have urged the public to help them apprehend the six suspects at large. They are Parminder Singh (known as Dhali), 30, Jatinder Singh (known as Cheema), 25, Vishayjeet Singh (known as Vishay), 21, Opinderjeet Sandhu (known as Opinder), 20, Amritpal Singh (known as Kamboj), 21, and Raja Waraich, 37.
The three men already arrested are Gurpreet Singh, 31, Lovepreet Singh, 19, and Arpinder Gill, 20, and all are facing charges of assault, assault with a weapon, break and enter, and possession of a dangerous weapon.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Const. Parminder Sidhu at 905-453-2121, ext. 2233 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). -CINEWS
