Toronto police arrested and charged an officer Sunday in connection with a landlord and tenant dispute last month.

On Dec. 6, police allege Const. Edward Parks, 54, unlawfully entered a dwelling, assaulted a woman and stole property, according to a news release.

As a result, he was criminally charged with unlawfully entering a dwelling, theft over $5,000 and assault, police said.

Parks was last assigned to corporate communications with the force, the release said. He has 15 years of service and has been suspended with pay as per the Police Services Act.
