Const. Thomas Hogbin due to appear in court in March, SIU says

Ontario's police watchdog has charged a Kemptville OPP officer with assault following the arrest of a 53-year-old woman in North Grenville in November.

Const. Thomas Hogbin, 36, is scheduled to appear in court in Brockville on March 10.

Officers were called to a home on River Road in North Grenville just before 12:30 a.m. on Nov. 14, OPP said in a media release issued at the time. A woman and an officer were injured during an "interaction" en route to the detachment, OPP said. No other details were released.

The Special Investigations Unit said in a media release issued Wednesday that OPP officers spoke with a 53-year-old woman who lived in the residence on River Road, and then left.

"The officers returned to the woman's home a short time later. There was an interaction between the officers and the woman, and she was subsequently arrested," the SIU said.

No further details about the woman's injuries were released.

The SIU investigates cases of death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault involving police in Ontario.

Kemptville OPP officer charged with assault in North Grenville arrest

An Ontario Provincial Police officer in Kemptville has been charged with assault in connection with a violent arrest in North Grenville three months ago.

The province’s Special Investigations Unit laid the charge Wednesday against 36-year-old Const. Thomas Hogbin.

The incident occurred Nov. 14, 2016 after police received a 911 call at 12:26 a.m. to go to an address on River Road in North Grenville, about 65 kilometres south of Ottawa.

The officers spoke to a 53-year-old woman at the address, then left. The officers returned a short time later and “there was an interaction between the officers and the woman, and she was subsequently arrested,” according to the SIU.

An OPP news release at the time said: “a female was placed under arrest and while being transported to the detachment, there was an interaction that occurred between the female and the officer in which both sustained injuries.”

The SIU said it would release no further information about the incident because the case is now before the courts.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates cases of civilian death or serious injury involving police, including allegations of sexual assault.

Hogbin is to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Brockville on March 10.

OPP Officer Charged in Relation to Arrest of Woman in North

OPP Officer Charged in Relation to Arrest of Woman in North Grenville

Mississauga — The Director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), Tony Loparco, has reasonable grounds to believe an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer with the Kemptville detachment committed a criminal offence in relation to the arrest of a woman in November of 2016. Director Loparco has caused a charge to be laid against the officer.

The SIU investigation found the following:

In the early morning hours of Monday, November 14, 2016, officers were dispatched to a residence in North Grenville after 911 received a call. The officers spoke with a 53-year-old woman who lived in the residence, and then left.

The officers returned to the woman’s home a short time later. There was an interaction between the officers and the woman, and she was subsequently arrested.

As a result of the SIU investigation, 36-year-old OPP Constable Thomas Hogbin is facing one count of assault, contrary to s. 266 of the Criminal Code.

The officer is required to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice at 41 Court House Square in Brockville on March 10, 2017.

The matter is now properly before the courts. In consideration of the fair trial interests of the accused, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

- consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
- depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
- report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
