SIU investigates after man hurt in city police probe
City police called to Dublin Street home early Saturday morning
The province’s Special Investigations Unit police watchdog is investigating after a man was injured early Saturday morning while Peterborough Police investigated a disturbance.
Officers were called around 2 a.m. Saturday to a home on Dublin Street at George Street after a woman reported she had been assaulted by her son, city police said.
Officers found the man armed with a weapon and after an interaction he was injured, police said.
The man was taken by paramedics to Peterborough Regional Health Centre and then transferred to a Toronto hospital for treatment of injuries, police said.
He was in stable condition later Saturday morning at the Toronto hospital, police said.
His mother was injured during the disturbance and was taken by paramedics to Peterborough Regional Health Centre for treatment and was then released, police said.
The SIU was called in to investigate.
No additional information was released by city police and the SIU has yet to release any information. The SIU is a civilian law enforcement agency, independent of the police, that conducts criminal investigations into circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in serious injury, death or allegations of sexual assault.
