A Peel police officer is facing assault charges stemming from an off-duty incident.

Investigators say they launched an investigation into an allegation of assault involving Constable Dawid Chilicki on Monday.

As a result, the nine-year member of Peel police was charged with assault and mischief under $5,000. He appeared in court on Tuesday.

The circumstances of the incident have not been released.

Police Chief Chris McCord said he takes the allegations very seriously, “Once the complaint was received through the Professional Standards Bureau, I ordered an investigation into the conduct of the officer.”
