Manitoba’s police watchdog is investigating after a 14-year-old girl’s arm was broken during an arrest by the Winnipeg Police Service.
The Independent Investigation Unit learned of the incident on Saturday.
The watchdog says Winnipeg police received a report about a girl who was “intoxicated” and “out of control” at a home. It alleges that when officers went to the home and tried to arrest her, there was a struggle, and the girl’s arm was broken above the elbow. She was treated and released from the hospital.
