EDMONTON- The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team is investigating circumstances surrounding an alleged injury to a 32-year-old man while in custody at the Red Deer Detachment on March 21.

RCMP received a complaint of a man refusing to leave a Red Deer residence despite the owners’ requests.

Police checks indicated the man was wanted on outstanding warrants.

Officers attended the residence and arrested the man who was in a wheelchair.

He was released from custody on March 14.

Approximately a week later, a complaint letter was received by the RCMP from the man’s legal counsel indicating he had sustained a broken leg while in custody.

As a result of that complaint ASIRT was called in to investigate.

As ASIRT’s investigation is ongoing, no further information will be released at this time.
