Video of woman hurling chair off condo balcony prompts police investigation | CBC News
Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a young woman who threw a chair and other items from an upper floor of a downtown Toronto condo building.
A video posted on the weekend on Facebook with the caption “good morning” shows the woman taking a peek over the balcony, and then throwing a folding chair onto the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard below.
The video cuts out before the chair she’s seen tossing lands on the highway, so it’s not possible to determine if it hits a car or causes a crash.
Toronto police now say the incident took place around 10 a.m. ET on Saturday in the Harbour and York streets area — where there are dozens of condo towers — and that a mischief investigation was launched on Sunday morning.
Police also say in a news release that the suspect threw other items from the balcony that landed near the entrance to another condo building.
Sgt. Ron Boyce told Radio-Canada that police believe the condo is at 55 Bremner Blvd., and said management at the building is working with them.
DEL Property Management, the company that runs the building, said they’ve provided information to police and declined to comment further about the incident.
The woman is believed to be in her 20s, police say.
Last week, the CBC reported on residents of a downtown condo tower who were infuriating their neighbours in a nearby building by throwing trash and liquor bottles, and vomiting from their balconies.
