Case Number: 10-OFI-046

Mississauga (1 April, 2010) --- Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing to probe the circumstances surrounding the injuries sustained by 30-year-old Ryan Arcon. He was wounded yesterday during an interaction with officers from the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS).

The WRPS reported to the SIU that at approximately 8:20 a.m. on Wednesday, March 31, officers responded to an apartment building at Erb Street West in Waterloo to investigate a disturbance. There was an interaction with Mr. Arcon, and he sustained injuries. He remains at the Grand River Hospital in critical condition.

Four investigators and two forensic investigators from the SIU are investigating this incident. Anyone who may have information regarding this case is asked to contact the Unit at 416-622-0748 or 1-800-787-8529.

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.
