Case Number: 19-OCI-248

Mississauga, ON (14 May, 2020) ---
In the early morning hours of October 11, 2019, a 43-year-old man was arrested by Peel Regional Police officers in Mississauga. He was subsequently taken to hospital and diagnosed with a minor collapse of his lower left lung and a small puncture wound to the lower right torso. The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has determined that there are no reasonable grounds to believe that a PRP officer committed a criminal offence in connection with the man’s arrest and injuries.
