On Monday, a video circulated around social media appearing to show a blonde woman, wearing all black, toss a chair off the balcony of the window of a building in Toronto. The video was cut off before the chair landed. Police confirmed the incident occurred on Saturday at a building in the Harbour and York streets area in downtown Toronto.

After the video went viral, police asked the woman in the footage to surrender. Police said two chairs were thrown from the balcony including other objects. The objects landed in an area in front of the building’s entrance, authorities said.

Col. David Hopkinson, the spokesman of the Toronto Police Service, said no one was injured in the incident.

“Once we had known who she was, investigators reached out to her and they started to make arrangements for her to turn herself in. We want to give her the opportunity to speak to her lawyer and then come in on her own volition,” Hopkinson said, according to CBC News.

Hopkinson called the incident “very callous” and said the objects could have hurt somebody.

“The opportunity that somebody might have been injured was easily there,” Hopkinson said.
