BC RCMP notifies IIO BC of an incident in Courtenay

Comox Valley, B.C.

2024-04-09 

The BC RCMP has notified the Independent Investigations Office of British Columbia (IIO BC) of an incident in Courtenay where one man suffered injuries while being arrested.

On April 7, 2024, at approximately 1:42 p.m., Comox Valley RCMP received a complaint of a man causing a disturbance at a residence.

Officers attended and informed the man that he was under arrest but he reportedly produced a weapon before barricading himself inside.

The Island District Emergency Response Team was contacted and deployed to the home.

During his arrest, at approximately 10:47 p.m., the man suffered injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.

The IIO BC is investigating police actions in the incident. As the matter is now under investigation by the IIO BC, no further information will be released by police.

Comox Valley RCMP are conducting a concurrent investigation into the initial complaint.

Please note that all aspects and circumstances of this incident will be the subject of independent investigation by the IIO BC. For more information about the IIO BC and media updates, you can visit its website at www.iiobc.ca.
