Manitoba police watchdog investigating 2017 arrest in Brandon

Manitoba’s police watchdog is investigating after a man was injured during his arrest by Brandon police more than three years ago.

The Independent Investigation Unit said in a release Thursday it was first notified of the incident Feb. 23, 2017 a few days after the man’s arrest on Feb. 14.

They say Brandon police were responding to a high-risk barricaded situation at the time when officers used a “less lethal firearm” to subdue and arrest the man.

According to the IIU Brandon police said the suspect was not injured in their initial report, leading the watchdog to determine their involvement wasn’t needed.
