Guelph police say the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has invoked its mandate after a man was injured while being arrested on Tuesday night.

Two men and a woman were arrested at a plaza on Willow Road at around 6:20 p.m. as part of a drug investigation.

Police said one of the men suffered serious injuries “as a result of the interaction” with officers and was treated at the hospital, but has since been released.
