SIU investigating injury to 16-year-old Stone Mills resident
The Special Investigations Unit (SIU), an investigative body that steps in when police are involved in an incident where someone has been seriously injured, dies or alleges sexual assault, is investigating an incident in which a 16-year-old Stone Mills resident suffered a serious injury.
Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) say that on November 27, 2020, shortly before 9:00 p.m., officers with the Lennox and Addington County (LAC) Detachment responded to a report of a family dispute in the Camden area of Stone Mills Township. According to OPP, some time after officers arrived at the residence, a 16-year-old male was transported to hospital by ambulance.
While OPP have not provided any information on the nature, extent or cause of the injuries, according to the SIU, the male fell from a second-floor balcony to the ground below. Officers placed the man under arrest and transported him to hospital for treatment of serious injuries. He was later released from the hospital into police custody and subsequently released.
Following the incident, OPP notified the SIU, which then invoked its mandate. OPP say that as a result of the SIU’s involvement, they are not be able to provide any further information.
The investigation into the incident is continuing with two SIU investigators assigned to the case. Designations of subject and witness OPP officers are pending.
