Police said they took a 47-year-old man into custody, but he suffered an injury during the arrest.

In a news release, police said they learned that the man’s injury was deemed to fit the mandate of the SIU on Thursday and notified the agency.

It’s the second time police have had to call the SIU in as many days after a homeowner collapsed and died while officers were investigating a break-in at his home.
