Numéro du dossier: 19-TCI-139

Mississauga, ON (19 juin 2019) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the arrest of a man last night in Toronto.
 
Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 10 p.m. on June 18, 2019, the homeowner of a residence on Torrens Avenue contacted police to report that a man had broken into his home and now had barricaded himself inside a bedroom.
  • Upon arriving at the scene, officers attempted to negotiate with the man.
  • A short time later, Emergency Task Force officers forced their way into the bedroom and located the man with injuries.
  • He was transported to hospital where he remains in the intensive care unit.

Three investigators and one forensic investigator have been assigned to this incident. Investigators are in the process of confirming the man’s identity.
 
The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation 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.
