The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) of BC is investigating an incident in Prince George.

On Tuesday, the RCMP  responded to a report of a man, who was alleged to have been pursuing another person with a weapon near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Dominion Street.

After being taken into custody, the man was found to have injuries that may have occurred during the arrest.

He was transported to hospital by emergency crews.

The IIO will investigate to determine what role, if any, the officers’ actions or inaction may have played into the injuries sustained by the man.
