Four people were charged criminally for allegedly throwing glass bottles from a condo balcony in downtown Toronto on Sunday afternoon, police say. 

A "large group" of people were gathered inside the short-term rental unit on the 35th storey of a tower near the corner of York Street and Lake Shore Boulevard, according to Toronto police.

After calls from the public, officers arrived shortly after 2:30 p.m. ET to see some bottles being thrown, police said in a news release. The glass projectiles narrowly missed officers on the ground, police added.

Four men, three from Toronto and one from Hamilton, were each charged with the following:

  • Common nuisance.
  • Mischief endangering life.
  • Assault peace officer with a weapon.
  • Unlawfully possess schedule 1.

The men, who ranged in age from 22 to 37 years old, were scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.

Seven other people were charged with failing to comply with COVID-19 emergency orders under the Re-Opening Ontario Act, police said.
