Man’s Fall from Window in Aurora Caused by Own Actions; SIU Terminates Investigation

Case Number: 18-OCI-109

Mississauga, ON (4 May, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into the serious injury sustained by a 28-year-old man last month in Aurora.

At approximately 2:30 a.m. on April 8, 2018, police were made aware of two suspicious men in backyards of homes on Boland Court. Upon arrival, officers located an insecure back door at one of the homes and entered. The 28-year-old man – who was upstairs – broke a window and attempted to lower himself out the window. However, he fell to the ground. Officers located the unconscious man on the ground under the window. 
  
Director Loparco said, “The man’s injuries were caused by his own actions. Accordingly, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”

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.
