SIU Appealing for Witnesses to Man’s Arrest in Lindsay Recreation Complex Parking Lot

Case Number: 19-OCI-163

Mississauga, ON (19 July, 2019) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is appealing for witnesses to the arrest of a 75-year-old man earlier this month in Lindsay.
 
Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • On July 8, 2019, Kawartha Lakes Police Service received a call regarding a domestic incident. As a result, at approximately 4 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Lindsay Recreation Complex located at 133 Adelaide Street. 
  • In the rear parking lot of the facility, an officer became involved in an interaction with a 75-year-old man. The man was arrested and taken to the police station.
  • He was later transported to hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious injury.

Three investigators and one forensic investigator have been assigned to this incident. At this time, one subject officer and seven witness officers have been designated.
 
The SIU is urging anyone who may have information regarding this incident to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529. 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
  • 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.
