B.C.'s police watchdog has opened an investigation after a man and woman were injured when Prince George Mounties responded to a 911 call earlier this year.

In a statement, the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIO) says local police responded to a call on Jan. 18, 2021, and attended to a home in the 3700-block Lansdowne Road. 

When police arrived at the home, an 'altercation' reportedly happened which saw a woman and a man sustain injuries. 

The IIO says they were notified of the incident on April 1, 2021, and have now opened an investigation into the circumstances around the event.
