"Commotion in St. James town: Police wearing gas masks drag a handcuffed man from Wellesley St. building last night, after someone threw furniture from a 12th-floor apartment. Tear gas was used to stun a knife-wielding man before police burst in as a crowd of about 100 gathered outside. A 35-year-old man will be held for psychiatric examination, police said."

Picture, 1990, English
