The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the injuries sustained by a 28-year-old man yesterday in Windsor.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • Shortly after midnight on June 11, 2017, Windsor Police Service officers went to a residence in the area of Wyandotte Street East and Howard Avenue to make an arrest.
  • After attempting to negotiate with the man, officers entered the residence at 5:30 a.m.
  • There was an interaction, and the man sustained dog bite injuries.
  • The man was taken to hospital for treatment of injuries.
 
Three investigators have been assigned to investigate this incident. At this time, one subject officer and five witness officers have been designated.

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529 ext. 1935. The Unit is also urging anyone who may have any video evidence related to this incident to upload that video through the SIU website.

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
