Toronto Police Officer Charged With G20 Assault

CP

THE CANADIAN PRESS — A Toronto police officer has been charged in connection with injuries suffered by a man during last year's G20 summit.

The Special Investigations Unit says Const. Glenn Weddell has been charged with assault causing bodily harm.

He is due in court July 21.

Dorian Barton, 29, claimed his arm was broken when he was assaulted by police officers during last June's G20 demonstrations in Toronto.

Weddell is the second Toronto police officer to face charges arising from protests during the meeting of world leaders.

Const. Babak Andalib-Goortani, 30, was charged with two counts of assault with a weapon for incidents at the Ontario legislature, which was a designated protest area during the June summit.
