Two Toronto police officers are facing assault charges following an incident earlier this year.
Const. Edward Ing and Const. John Cruz, were dealing with an individual on Gerrard Street East on April 24, at about 11 p.m., when they were approached by Richard Moore.
Moore, 58, exchanged words with the officers. An altercation ensued and Moore was taken St. Michael's Hospital for treatment of injuries.
The province's Special Investigations Unit was called in to investigate and on Monday it issued a news release saying assault charges have been laid against Ing and Cruz.
The two officers will make their first court appearances in November.
