A man has been hit with numerous charges related to an April 12 carjacking — making it at least the fourth time he’s been charged with such since 2021, records show.

Toronto police announced they charged Mehkash Sohal, of Mississauga on Tuesday.

Police also seized illegal firearms from the three men arrested, one of whom was Sohal.

“The individuals committing these crimes are violent and not deterred at the thought of being arrested,”  said the Acting Superintendent of Specialized Criminal Investigations, Susan Gomes. 

Footage shown by police shows the three men attempting to flee the scene while being surrounded by police cars, smashing into a police cruiser in the process with their stolen BMW X5.

4th time charged in three years

The fact that Sohal was not already behind bars has created quite a stir on social media, where users have learned that he’s been charged multiple times in the past, and not just for carjackings, but also assault. 

Sohal was last charged just four months ago for a separate violent carjacking in Scarborough where he was one of four men who intentionally bumped a car, then assaulted the man, before stealing his car.

Police said on Tuesday that they are aware Sohal was charged in December for a separate carjacking.

At the time, Sohal was charged with robbery with violence, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, theft of motor vehicle and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, among other charges.

But it doesn’t stop there. In 2021, Sohal was charged twice for separate carjackings, one “violent carjacking” in November 2021, and another car theft on April 30, 2021.

“Canadian criminal laws are so lax. This Mehkash Sohal dude was arrested of the same crime in 2021, Dec 2023, and now Apr 2024. What does he have to do before he gets a lengthy sentence,” asked one social media user.
