The Independent Investigation Unit is looking into an incident where a woman’s fibula was fractured during her arrest in Dauphin on November 27.
The IIU says the 25-year-old woman was arrested after police responded to a call at a local residence. During her arrest for breach of peace, the IIU says the woman was uncooperative and officers had to use force to control her.
She complained of pain in her knee and was taken to hospital, where she remained overnight for observation.
The same woman contacted police on December 4 on an unrelated matter, where she told officers her leg was injured during the previous incident. The RCMP contacted the IIU the following day to inform investigators that the woman had sustained a fractured left fibula.
The IIU will investigate and provide further information at a later date.
