On Sept. 30, officers went to a hotel in the area of Colborne and Stanley streets in relation to a warrant for the arrest of a 39-year-old man.

The man was handcuffed, taken to the police station and placed in a cell, but the following day, the man was taken to hospital due to pain in his left shoulder.
