Two sentenced to house arrest for 2010 assault

Bhavdeep Deol and Herman Sidhu of Abbotsford were among three men who attacked a man outside a local pub.

Two men have been sentenced to house arrest for their role in a stabbing outside an Abbotsford pub in August 2010.

Bhavdeep Deol, 23, and Herman Sidhu, 22, were both initially charged with aggravated assault but pleaded guilty earlier this year to the lesser charge of assault causing bodily harm.

Each was sentenced last Tuesday in Abbotsford provincial court to a conditional sentence — 12 months for Deol and nine months for Sidhu.

Deol also received one year’s probation, and both were given a 10-year weapons ban.

Co-accused Gurparit Gill, 32, was sentenced in May 2011 to a four-year jail term for aggravated assault.

The trio were charged after a 24-year-old man was randomly attacked as he left Finnegan’s Pub and Grill – located on King Road adjacent to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre – on Aug. 22, 2010. The victim was punched, kicked and stabbed three times in the arms and torso. He recovered in hospital.

His assailants left the scene and were stopped by police a short distance away. Sidhu, who was driving the vehicle, was charged with failure to provide a breath sample at the scene, but later pleaded guilty to driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention.

He was fined $400 and given a four-month driving prohibition in March of this year.

Meanwhile, Deol was expected to enter a guilty plea yesterday (after press deadline) on another set of charges. He was charged in July 2011 with obstructing a police officer, “personation” with intent to avoid arrest, and breach of his bail conditions.

The charges resulted after Deol was pulled over by police in the 2000 block of Sumas Way and allegedly did not provide his driver’s licence and identified himself as someone else.

The breach charge resulted from allegedly breaking a condition that he not consume alcohol.
