The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba is looking into the arrest of a man whose jaw was broken during an encounter with Winnipeg police.
The unit says police were called to a break-in Sunday afternoon on Arthur Street in the Exchange District. They attempted to take a 25-year-old man into custody, but he resisted and officers used force to subdue him.
The man went to hospital with a broken jaw and other fractures.
The IIU probes incidents involving police officers in Manitoba whether on or off duty.
