OPP officer in Kenora charged with aggravated assault: Ontario's police watchdog

KENORA, Ont. – A provincial police officer in Kenora, Ont., has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with the arrest of a 48-year-old man last December.

Ontario’s police watchdog says the incident took place on Dec. 16 of last year after the officer saw a vehicle on Highway 17.

The Special Investigations Unit says the driver pulled into the parking lot of a convenience store as a result of the officer’s interest in the vehicle.

The SIU says there was an “interaction” between the two and the man was arrested and taken to the Kenora detachment.

The agency says he complained about being in pain and was taken to hospital, and eventually was diagnosed with a serious injury.

It says OPP Const. Steve Jacko is due in court to face the charge on April 25.

The complainant was diagnosed with a serious injury following his arrest.

KENORA, ON — Ontario's Special Investigations Unit has charged an officer with the Kenora OPP detachment with aggravated assault.

The charge against Constable Steve Jacko is in connection with an incident on December 16, 2018 on Highway 17 in the Kenora area.

According to a statement from the SIU, after an OPP officer observed a vehicle on the highway, "as a result of the officer's interest in the vehicle, the driver pulled into the parking lot of a convenience store."

The SIU reports that this was followed by "an interaction" between the man and the officer, and that the man was then arrested and taken to the Kenora OPP detachment.

When he complained of pain, the man was taken to hospital for treatment, and was later diagnosed with a serious injury.

Jacko is scheduled to appear in court next month.
