Suspect charged in date rape case

A Brampton man has been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at a downtown nightclub more than two weeks ago.

A Brampton man has been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at a downtown nightclub more than two weeks ago.

A woman told police that, on Jan. 22, she was sexually assaulted in the bathroom of a bar near King Street West and Brant Street after a man put a date rape drug in her drink.

Police yesterday credited the release of a surveillance video with helping identify the man allegedly responsible for the assault. The video showed the man entering the club with another man.

“The last 24 hours have been very fast,” said Det. Const. Mike Norman of the Sex Crimes Unit. “We got phone calls to identify these people. The individual has brought himself forward and turned himself in with counsel.”

Jagdeep Chahal, 32, surrendered to police at 8:30 a.m. yesterday. He has been charged with sexual assault and administering a noxious substance. He is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow morning.
