Toronto Police Officer Charged with Manslaughter for Death of Brampton Teen
Toronto police Const. Calvin Au has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of 19-year-old Chadd Facey from Brampton in 2021. The altercation between the two parties started over a fake Apple watch deal when Calvin Au along with another officer showed up responding to a Kijiji ad.
According to reports, on April 26, 2021, two off-duty police officers named Calvin Au and Gurmakh Benning went to the area of Highway 50 and Bellchase Trail to meet with a teenager named Chadd Facey about his Kijiji ad for an Apple watch. According to the documents pertaining to the case, Au discovered after the transaction that the Apple watch he got was fake.
The officers then chased Facey in their vehicle and caught up to him. They demanded their money back but ended up chasing him on foot. Au tackled Facey to the ground and it is unclear what the state of injuries sustained by Facey was. The two officers left him there and did not report the incident to Peel police. However, officer Benning later reported the incident to 911 without revealing that he was a police officer and added that the matter had been resolved.
