March 28, 2024  By The Canadian Press

Mar. 28, 2024, Calgary, Alta. – Alberta’s police watchdog says a Calgary officer has been charged over an alleged assault at the arrest processing centre two years ago.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says the officer is accused of repeatedly using force on a handcuffed male suspect, who had to be taken to hospital.

ASIRT says its investigation provided reasonable grounds to believe an offence had been committed.

It decided to lay the charge after Crown prosecutors determined the evidence met its standard.

Cst. David Wilhelm is charged with assault and has been released from custody.

His first court appearance is set for April 17.
