Police watchdog says teen’s jaw broken following arrest in Toronto Add to ...

The province’s police watchdog is investigating after a 16-year-old boy ended up in hospital with a broken jaw after being arrested in Toronto.

Police say members of its anti-gang violence unit were on patrol Sunday and noticed a male in a downtown Toronto laneway (near Yonge and Gould Streets) acting like he had a gun.

They say investigators found a loaded 9-mm handgun and arrested him.

The Special Investigations Unit says the teen’s jaw was fractured around 7:30 p.m. following the arrest and he was taken to hospital.

A Toronto boy has been charged with eight weapons offences, including carrying a concealed weapon.

He cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
