As they continue their investigation into the horrific attack that occurred on a Brampton media celebrity outside of his home last month, police have released an image of a suspect vehicle.
On the morning of August 4, Joti Singh Mann was getting into a Jeep that was parked in his driveway when a man brandishing an axe approached him.
After Mann shut the door and popped the glass free from its frame, surveillance footage from the site shows the suspect swinging the blade through the driver’s side window of the car.
Later, two more men join the assault and drag Mann from his car.
One of those men was armed with a machete, which was then used on the attack.
The violence eventually came to a stop after Mann’s mother ran out into the street to intervene. However, Mann sustained serious injuries, including the loss of a toe.
In a release issued on Friday, Peel police made a renewed appeal for information in the case, which is being investigated as an attempted murder.
They also released an image of a vehicle that they say was used by the suspects.
It is described as a blue Chevrolet Cruze 4-door, with hubcaps, chrome trim and tinted windows.
The update comes one week after Mann spoke with CTV News Toronto about the attack, revealing that he was beaten with a with a machete and axe, pepper-sprayed, and Tasered.
He told the network that he has developed post-traumatic stress disorder, has been plagued by nightmares, and does not sleep more than three hours at a time.
