Two Abbotsford men are guilty following a knife attack that hospitalized their victim.
Bhavdeep Deol and Herman Sidhu have been found guilty of assault causing bodily harm after taking part in an assault of a 24-year-old man in August, 2010.
Deol, Sidhu and another man, Gurparit Gill, were originally charged with aggravated assault after a lone man was punched, kicked and stabbed three times after exiting a bar in the 33700 block of King Road around 1:40 a.m. on Aug. 22.
The trio fled in a black Honda Civic, but were caught by police in the car a short time later, several kilometers away.
Gill has already been sentenced for the attack, and got four years behind bars in May 2011 for the stabbing and an additional firearms charge. He has significant criminal history that includes possession of a controlled substance, possession for the purpose of trafficking, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and possession of a prohibited weapon.
Deol and Sidhu are scheduled to appear in Abbotsford provincial court on May 30 for a pre-sentencing report.
Deol's prior record includes assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.
Sidhu's previous criminal charge was the failure to supply a breath sample.
Deol is also facing additional charges of obstructing a police officer, personification to avoid arrest and breach from an incident in July 2011 when he was pulled over by Abbotsford police. He gave them a false name to avoid being caught violating a bail condition.
He is scheduled to appear in Abbotsford provincial court on the more recent charges on June 7.
