On December 7th, Toronto Police Service apprehended a non-community member at the Student Centre. No injuries were reported. The individual had been previously issued trespass notice and is not permitted on York’s campuses. The circumstances at the Student Centre yesterday met a threshold for safety risk and this is why Toronto Police intervention was required.
