Police watchdog investigating after officers reportedly use stun guns, strike man with cruiser

Ontario's police watchdog is investigating an incident in which officers reportedly used stun guns and struck a man with a police cruiser in downtown Toronto.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) says Toronto police responded to a call for a robbery near King Street West and Bathurst Street at around 6:40 p.m. on Sunday, April 12.

The officers reportedly found the suspect, a 28-year-old man, wielding a knife after arriving at the scene.

The man then fled southbound on Bathurst Street to Front Street, where police "deployed conducted energy weapons at the man," though he continued to run away.
