Chilliwack teenager wanted for assault, mischief, uttering threats

Dhillon Singh Sahota also charged with unlawfully being in a house

A B.C.-wide warrant has been issued for a Chilliwack teenager wanted for uttering threats, mischief under $5,000, being unlawfully in a dwelling house, and two counts of assault.

Dhillon Singh Sahota, 18, faces the charges in connection with an incident that occurred on Sept. 28 in Chilliwack.

RCMP caution the public that if Sahota is seen, do not attempt to apprehend him but immediately call 911.

He is described as a Caucasian male; height 170 centimetres (5’7”); weight 72 kilograms (159 lbs); with brown eyes and black hair.

While just legally an adult, the alleged crimes he is wanted for occurred just six days after charges were dropped related to another series of incidents.

On Sept. 22, a stay of proceedings was entered on charges in a court proceeding against Sahota. He faced two counts of assault on Jan. 25, one count of forcible entry from Feb. 10 and one count of uttering threats from Feb. 12. He also is alleged to have breached bail on Aug. 10, a charge that was dropped on Sept. 26.

As late as July 4 Sahota was scheduled to enter a guilty plea on those charges, but after a scheduled trial on Sept. 22, charges were dropped.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Dhillon Singh Sahota is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
