2 Toronto officers convicted of assault

Two members of the Toronto police force have been convicted of assault.

The officers, Edward Ing and John Cruz, were found guilty of assaulting Richard Moore — a disabled man — outside his home on the night of April 24, 2009.

Moore, 58, became verbally abusive when the police tried to arrest him on a drunk and disorderly charge.

He suffered fractured ribs and a cut on his head while being taken into custody.

The court ruled that the officers had no reason to take Moore into custody — and the judge noted that blood tests showed no trace of alcohol in his system.

Ing and Cruz will be sentenced at a later date.
