The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has been called after a man was allegedly injured during an arrest in Oshawa Tuesday (Nov. 12).
At approximately 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, a suspect reportedly escaped lawful custody of Durham Regional Police while attending Lakeridge Health Oshawa for tests.
The 27-year-old was located at a nearby building and with the assistance of our K-9 Unit, he was taken into custody.
Police say he was taken to hospital for injuries sustained during the arrest.
As is the protocol, the SIU was notified of the incident. The SIU has invoked its mandate.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the SIU at 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.
