Charges not Warranted in Relation to Interaction with Man During Execution of Search Warrant at Toronto Apartment

Numéro du dossier: 18-TCI-354

Mississauga, ON (16 octobre 2019) ---
On November 26, 2018, Toronto Police Service officers attended an apartment building on McCowan Road to execute a search warrant for illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia obtained under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. When officers showed up at the door of a unit, a 40-year-old man was the only person present. The officers entered the apartment and confronted the man physically. During the course of that interaction, the man suffered a broken nose and laceration of his right lower eyelid. He was transported to hospital for treatment. The Interim Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against any police officer in relation to this incident.
