Man hurt during Winnipeg police arrest, IIU investigating

Manitoba’s police watchdog is investigating after a man was hurt during a Winnipeg police arrest.

Sunday afternoon, authorities said officers saw a motorcyclist exit the rear lane of Hallet Street onto Rover Avenue.

When police checked the licence plate, they said it was expired and registered to a different motorcycle.

Officers tried to pull the man over, but he sped up to get away, authorities said. He was seen in the North End and Garden City area before hitting a car at Templeton Avenue and Meredith Bay, according to police.

He was arrested “after a brief use of force,” officers said, adding they later found that he had an outstanding arrest warrant.
