Last September, Vancouver officers reported they were in an unmarked vehicle following a male suspect riding a bike along Hamilton Street at around 2 a.m.

“During the interaction, the male suffered serious injuries when he fell from his bike,” the Independent Investigations Office said in a release Thursday.

The office, which investigates incidents of serious harm of death involving police, has forwarded its report to Crown counsel for prosecutors to consider laying criminal charges.

The IIO did not provide further details about the incident.
