SIU Probes North Bay Man's Injuries

Case Number: 07-OCI-250

TORONTO (20 December, 2007) --- Two investigators from the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) along with an SIU forensic identification technician (FIT) are probing the circumstances surrounding the injuries to a 28-year-old North Bay man last Saturday.

At 2:37 p.m. December 15, 2007, the North Bay Police Service was at a Main St. West address regarding a disturbance call. As a result of the investigation the officers attempted to arrest a man. During the arrest a physical altercation took place between the officers and the man. The man suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital where he was admitted for treatment.

The SIU investigators are interested in talking to the driver of a pick up truck who was seen in the area at the time of the arrest, or to anyone else who may have witnessed the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact call the lead investigator at the SIU at 1 800 787 8529 extension #2293.

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.
