Toronto police are asking the public to help identify a woman who allegedly threw furniture from a balcony in the downtown core.

The chair appears to hurtle towards the Gardiner Expressway, one of the busiest highways in the country, but there are no reported injuries.

The video, captioned "Good morning", shows a woman with long, blond hair, and dressed in black picking up a chair on the balcony and then looking over the balcony while holding the chair.

"We believe we know who she is", said Toronto police spokesman Constable David Hopkinson.

A video of the incident began circulating online over the weekend and police say they began an investigation into the mischief incident on Sunday night.

By Tuesday afternoon, police said they had made contact with "either the perpetrator herself or her representative" and are working on a plan to have her surrender herself.

The items, which police say were thrown from a "very high floor" in the building, landed in front of the entrance to the condo, police said in a news release.

Police have described the incident as "outrageous".

Police have yet to identify the person in the video, and it's unclear as to when the clip was shot.

The items included two chairs, Hopkinson said.
