A second teenager has been charged in connection with the death of a 22-year-old Brampton man in what police are calling an unprovoked attack.
Surajdeep Singh was found around 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 13 lying on a pathway near Queen Mary and Heathwood drives covered in blood. He was rushed to the hospital without vital signs by emergency crews, but was pronounced dead a short time later.
Police said that Singh was attacked while he was heading home from his place of worship.
His family described him as a “gem of a person” who worked part-time at a factory in Peel Region.
Investigators announced on Friday that a 16-year-old boy had been taken into custody in connection with the “unprovoked attack” and has been charged with second-degree murder.
