Ronjot Singh Dhami, whose last known address was in Surrey, B.C., is the second of three suspects arrested by police in the attack that was caught on video back on March 13.

A 29-year-old man with autism was putting on roller blades when police said three men came and began to attack him.

Dhami’s lawyer said last week that his client is not guilty and had planned to turn himself in.

He was convicted for assault with a weapon in 2011. He also has traffic violations dating to between 2012 and 2014.
