Ontario's Special Investigations Unit is investigating an "interaction" between Peel police and a man in Brampton early Sunday.

Police were called to a residence on Montjoy Crescent at about 2:20 a.m. "in regards to the behaviour of a 24-year-old man who lived in the home," a spokesperson for the SIU said in an email statement.

"When officers attempted to apprehend the man, there was an interaction. The man was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious injury," the statement continued.

No further information about the nature of the injury was provided.

Four SIU investigators have been assigned to the case.

The SIU is an arms-length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
