An Abbotsford police officer has been charged with assault over an in-custody incident last year.
The B.C. Prosecution Service said Christopher Conway was charged Thursday with a single count of assault after an incident on Nov. 21, 2021.
Conway is due for his first appearance in court on Oct. 27 in provincial court in Abbotsford.
“The charges were approved by an experienced Crown counsel with no prior or current connection with the officer,” said spokesman Dan McLaughlin in a statement.
The B.C. Prosecution Service does not release information or make comment on a case while it is before the court.
