Toronto police say seven officers were injured — including four who were sent to hospital — during an incident at a demonstration in midtown.
Police say two people were arrested, and charges are pending, though there's no word yet what those charges will be.
They say the incident began Saturday evening just before 8 p.m. when a person who wasn't involved in the demonstration jumped onto a car.
Police say officers intervened, and a second person jumped in and began fighting with them. They say a hostile crowd then surrounded the officers.
Police spokesman Const. Edward Parks said the four officers taken to hospital were all treated for minor injuries and later released.
Police noted this demonstration was unrelated to one earlier in the day that was organized by the social justice group Not Another Black Life.
