Mississauga, ON (29 May, 2018) —
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into an interaction that occurred last month in Port Hope between police officers and a 17-year-old male.
On April 6, 2018, the Port Hope Police Service received information that a young man in the area of Wellington Street and Croft Street appeared to be intoxicated and was waving a long stick at people in the area. When officers approached the young man, he ignored their commands and continued walking. He was arrested soon after. Paramedics arrived on scene and transported the young man to hospital for treatment.
Director Loparco said, “The medical evidence indicates the young man did not suffer a serious injury. As such, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”
