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.
