Two Peterborough police officers have been charged in relation to the arrest of a 60-year old man last summer.
Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, had reasonable grounds to believe the two officers committed criminal offences in the August 3, 2017 case.
That day, officers went to the second floor of a commercial/residential building in the area of Water and Simcoe Streets in Peterborough, where they were involved in an interaction with the man, who was said to be causing a disturbance.
The man was arrested and taken to the police station.
He was then transported by ambulance to hospital where he was diagnosed with serious injuries.
As a result of the SIU investigation, PPS Constable Tim Fish and PPS Constable Geunwoo Kim have each been charged with one count of assault causing bodily harm.
The officers are required to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Peterborough on February 15.
