SIU ends investigation into Pen Centre incident

The Special Investigations Unit is dropping an investigation into an incident at the Pen Centre.

The SIU was looking into an incident involving a man behaving strangely at the mall back in August of 2013. Two mall security guards apprehended the man in the parking lot, taking him to the ground.

When a Niagara Regional Police officer arrived the man was charged with trespassing.

Last year, NRP received a statement of claim alleging the officer was responsible for serious injuries suffered by the man. 

But the SIU director has now ruled there is not enough evidence to continue the investigation after reviewing video evidence.
