According to the tweets, Toronto Police received several reports of a large gathering in a condo unit overlooking the intersection.

A spokesperson for the TPS told Narcity that officers saw a bottle being thrown and striking the sidewalk, but police say no injuries have been reported.

TPS later tweeted that they had entered the condo and were investigating 14 people.

According to police, York Street is closed to drivers until photographs are taken and clean-up is completed. Until then, drivers should use alternate routes.
