The province’s police watchdog is investigating after a 32-year-old man was injured during an arrest at Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga last week.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) said the incident happened around 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 7, as Toronto police were arresting the man in the mall’s parking lot.

The man was taken into custody after being treated in hospital and released.

The SIU believes people may have shot video of the arrest and are asking for any witnesses to come forward.
