An Indian Canadian man surrendered before police on Saturday after he was charged with drugging and raping a woman at a city nightclub two weeks ago.

Thirty-two-year-old Jagdeep Chahal, a resident of Brampton on the outskirts of Toronto, had sexually assaulted the woman in the bathroom of the nightclub on Jan 22.

According a report lodged by the victim with police, she was sexually assaulted by Chahal after putting a date rape drug in her drink at a downtown nightclub.

Police were able to identify to Chahal after reviewing a surveillance video which showed that the Indian man had come to the nightclub for drinks with another man.

``We got phone calls to identify these people. The individual has brought himself forward and turned himself in with counsel,'' a police spokesperson said.

Chahal was taken in custody after he surrendered to police early Saturday morning.

He will be produced in court Sunday morning for his remand.
