SIU Appealing for Witnesses to Morning Fight that Ended with Arrest and Injured Arm

Case Number: 16-OCI-149

Mississauga, ON (11 June, 2016) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is appealing for any witnesses to a fight between a number of youths that ended in arrests and a teen with a broken arm.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • Just after 11:00 a.m. on June 10, Peel Regional Police received a number of 911 calls about several youths fighting outside a home on Bartley Bull Parkway.
  • Before responding officers arrived at the scene, two off-duty officers intervened to stop the fighting.
  • A 17-year-old male suffered a broken arm.
  • One off-duty officer is with Peel Regional Police.  The other is employed with the Guelph Police Service.          
Two investigators and one forensic investigator have been assigned to this incident.

The SIU is urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 or directly at 416-641-1873.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
