Peel police have been cleared by Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) after a 23-year-old man was injured in Mississauga.

“The evidence is clear that no police officer caused or contributed to the complainant’s injury,” said SIU director Tony Loparco.
“Accordingly I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”

The incident took place on May 27 at 5 a.m. 

That’s when a woman contacted police and paramedics with concern for a family member.

Officers located the man and put him into a police cruiser until medics arrived.

While in the cruiser, the man struck his head on the plexiglas screen numerous times.

Paramedics then transported the man to hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious injury.

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.
