MONTREAL - The Crown wants a six-year prison sentence for a 21-year-old man who killed a Montreal father with a single punch.

The victim, Iqbal Ahmed, was simply trying to bring his wayward teen daughter home but other teens attacked him, thinking he was a pedophile.

A judge will decide Francis Belanger's fate in December following sentencing hearings that ended this week.

Ahmed, who was in his fifties, had followed his teen daughter through south-end Montreal on April 8, 2011, believing she had gone out with two friends without permission.

The friends joined a larger group of teens and said a pedophile was chasing them.

Ahmed tried to flee but was accosted by two people, including Francis Belanger, who punched him without warning.
