Alleged domestic assault by Thompson RCMP member being investigated

An allegation of domestic assault by a member of the Thompson RCMP has been referred to the organization that investigates incidents involving police officers in Manitoba.

The Independent Investigation Unit (IIU) said in a Jan. 9 press release that the RCMP received a complaint from a third party Jan. 6 regarding an alleged assault by an off-duty officer on Jan. 5. The RCMP alerted the IIU, which has taken over the investigation. There were no serious injuries involved, the IIU said, but the unit’s civilian director determined that it is in the public interest to investigate.
