Shocking footage of a physical altercation at Union Station after a Toronto Maple Leafs game has gone viral.
The video, shot in January, shows TTC enforcement officers punch two men.
TTC CEO Andy Byford has asked Toronto police to investigate, according to the Toronto Star.
At the time of the video, both TTC employees were transit enforcement officers, not special constables. One has since become a special constable. The difference between the two is a special constable has the power to arrest someone, while an enforcement official does not.
The men attacked have been identified as 33-year-old Jamie Gillman and 63-year-old Russell Gillman.
Both men have been charged with assault and uttering threats. Jamie faces two counts of assault while Russell faces one.
The TTC issued a statement saying, “The TTC wants to ensure that any use-of-force by its officers is justified and that approved procedures are always followed.”
Watch the video for yourself and sound off in the comments: do you agree with how the TTC employees handled the situation?
