IIO Tasked Following Incident In Sicamous
A Tuesday Police incident in Sicamous is now under investigation by B.C's Independent Investigations Office.
Police were called around 11:30 Tuesday morning about a male who was threatening to harm himself with a knife.
RCMP attended the scene and found a male with what looked to be self-inflicted wounds.
That man then ran from Police while continuing to injure himself with the weapon.
Officers eventually detained the male at a nearby gas station, and he was later hospitalized for an assessment.
The IIO is now set to investigate if the actions of Police contributed to that man's injuries.
Anyone with a witness account of Tuesday's incident is asked to call the IIO at 1-855-446-8477.
