The Toronto police say they know the identity of a woman caught on video throwing a chair from a top floor of a residential building, but do not know about her exact whereabouts and want her to surrender.
The police received a "substantial amount of information" from the public that helped officers determine the woman's identity, Const. David Hopkinson from the Toronto Police Service said Tuesday
He refused to release the woman's name or age, but told CBC Toronto: "We are in contact with her and allow her to consult a lawyer and turn in."
Hopkinson confirmed that the police have spoken to the woman or someone who acts as her representative.
Police believe the chair-throwing incident occurred Saturday about 10 at the ET condo in the harbor and York streets area, which overlooks the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard. It was taken on video and distributed on social media on Monday.
Hopkinson said two chairs were thrown over the balcony. The police are also looking for the person who played the video chair.
It has been upset by the possibility that the thrown objects could have damaged someone or caused an accident, as the highway is just below.
Hopkinson said he received a copy of the video on Sunday and police began investigating on Monday.
The things the police say were thrown from a "very high floor" in the building, landed in front of the entrance to the apartment, police said in a press release.
The police have said that the woman is in demand for an investigation, but Hopkinson refused to say what fees she could face.
A video published on the weekend on Facebook with the text "Good Morning" shows a woman, dressed in black, checking over the balcony and then throwing a collapsible chair on the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard below.
On Monday, the police released a photo of the woman, which they say seems to be in her 20s.
Police said the incident has led to dozens of calls.
"People can stop calling now," Hopkinson said.
