A Vancouver man who was beaten by plainclothes police officers in his own home has settled a lawsuit with the city.

Yao Wei Wu, 46, launched a lawsuit two months after he was roughed up in a case of mistaken identity on Jan. 21, 2010.

The Concerned Citizens Group, which was lobbying on Wu’s behalf, said in an email that the case has been settled, reported News 1130. Part of the agreement includes not releasing details of the settlement.

Two Vancouver police officers, who were in plain clothes, arrived at Wu’s house at 2:20 a.m. that January day. They had received a call from a woman that she was being attacked by her husband – but they lived in the home’s other suite, reported The Province.

Wu, who doesn’t speak any English, answered the door, and was pulled to the ground and punched several times after allegedly resisting arrest. He suffered injuries to his face, left eye, back and legs.

Wu told CBC News that he did not resist because the men were armed with guns.

Investigators from the Delta police looked into the case and cleared the two officers, who are still on duty, confirmed Vancouver police Chief Jim Chu on Friday.

Chu personally apologized to Wu after the beating.

Wu thanked the media, his lawyers and the public for their support in a news release, reported The Province on Friday.

“At my most helpless moment following my injury, the concerned group [of supporters] came to my aid and advocated on my behalf,” Wu said in a news release.

“They got me the best lawyers and helped provide my family with psychological counselling. My family and I are extremely grateful for their help.”

The community raised $6,800 for Wu and his family. That will now be donated to the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said the newspaper.

Wu’s case was set to go to civil trial but his lawyer, Cameron Ward, confirmed to CKNW that it’s been called off.

B.C.'s Police Complaint Commissioner ordered a public hearing into the actions of the two officers, but that was blocked by the B.C. Supreme Court. That issue is now under appeal.
