Mississauga, ON (10 November, 2016) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is appealing for witnesses to an interaction that occurred at the end of October between police and a 32-year-old man in Tillsonburg. 

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 30, 2016, Ontario Provincial Police officers responded to a business at the intersection of Broadway Street and Brock Street East to deal with a man.
  • Outside of the establishment, there was an interaction between police and the man. He was arrested.
  • While at the Tillsonburg OPP detachment, the man complained of pain. As a result, he was taken to Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Two investigators have been assigned to investigate this incident.

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 ext. 9044.

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
