The Independent Investigations Office of BC has taken over an investigation from the Vancouver Police Department after a 64-year-old man was allegedly injured during a scuffle with officers Saturday afternoon.
The Vancouver resident allegedly assaulted a City Hall security guard. He was later hospitalized for injuries believed to have been sustained during his arrest.
“There was some sort of physical altercation involving this man and some police officers and some injuries, obviously,” the IIOBC’s Owen Court told 24 hours. “Our investigation is looking at the specifics right now and it’s still pretty early.”
