Man files complaint after arrest by Algonquin security guards

July 5, 2019

Noah Coker has scheduled a meeting with Algonquin College to file a complaint and called on the Ottawa police to investigate a situation where he was injured during an arrest by college security guards while on his way home from a nearby grocery store. While being escorted off campus, he asked the guards to stop following him and the situation escalated. Coker added that it did not feel as though race played a role in the incident until a security guard said that he looked “like you've been arrested before.” Algonquin issued a statement to CBC stating that security staff "became aware of a man causing a disturbance on college property" Wednesday, and that he was "noticeably intoxicated and hostile when approached."
