SIU terminates investigation in Cobourg

The province’s Special Investigations Unit has ended an investigation into an incident in Cobourg last month.

Early in the morning on April 4, a man was arrested after a domestic incident near Division Street and County Road 2 and taken to the Cobourg Police station.

The SIU says while being held in a cell, the man fractured his hand by punching a wall and was taken to hospital.

SIU Director Tony Loparco says “all the evidence clearly establishes the man’s injury was self inflicted” and the investigation was terminated.

The SIU is called any time there is an incident of death, serious injury or allegation of sexual assault against police.
