On Sept. 10, 2003, Faulino Deng beat up a Toronto roofing contractor and threatened to kill him.

A lanky former Sudanese soldier, Deng had only been in Canada 10 months and already he’d committed an aggravated assault.

Because he wasn’t a Canadian citizen, Deng was brought before the Immigration and Refugee Board, which ordered his deportation.

Fifteen years after the assault, Global News found him living in a Scarborough bungalow owned by Toronto Community Housing. He has amassed dozens more criminal convictions, one for sexual assault, and is scheduled for trial next year on five charges, including two counts of trafficking, which he denies.
