Toronto police are looking for the men who allegedly climbed up a construction crane on Sunday night in the downtown core.

Police and fire crews responded to a call at around 8 p.m. in the York and Harbour Streets area.

Two men were reportedly on top of the crane and another man was at street level. The men on the crane were wearing black clothing and were allegedly taking selfies.

Crews could not locate the men on the crane and it is believed they fled the scene.

Bay Street was closed in both directions for a short time but has since reopened.
