Police have identified the suspect in a chair-tossing video as a 19-year-old Toronto woman after she turned herself in on Wednesday.

She was by herself when she walked into a Toronto Police Department just after 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The woman wanted for a Mischief - Endanger Life investigation after throwing a chair from a downtown condo balcony surrendered to authorities this morning.

"She's going to be in court this morning", he said, according to Global News.

On Tuesday, police urged the woman to turn herself in, saying that they now knew her identity.

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.

This is not amusing, I hope she gets caught!???? And that's what has happened, ' police spokesman David Hopkinson told CBC.

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

But when it comes to India, there have been multiple reports that Apple may start manufacturing more smartphones in the country. Both companies have seen a slump in shipments in China, and have been the worst performing among top five smartphone makers.

Toronto Mayor John Tory said the video shows "grossly irresponsible behaviour".

Speaking after his client's bail hearing, lawyer Greg Leslie said the woman had a "momentary lapse in judgment" when she pitched a chair over the 55 Bremner Blvd. balcony.

The chairs reportedly landed near the building's front entrance and there were no reports of injuries.

"It was not just a lark gone bad". He added, "This could have caused death or injury and is not acceptable".

Neighbours have said the unit was used as a short-term rental.

"We see people coming in... and out every weekend and it's never the same people", one man, who didn't want to be identified, said.

Airbnb responded in a statement.

"It's clear Ms. Zoia is the one who threw the chair", said Leslie. "We are investigating whether any Airbnb guests were involved and we will be suspending any guest accounts that appear to be connected to this incident".
