“We won’t be investigating this any further because the intentions are unclear. You just hope the person wasn’t doing it for a dare and doesn’t suffer from a mental illness,” Const. Tammy Skrabek said.

Anyone caught climbing a city bridge or building could face penalties. Skrabek said if someone were to be charged for such an act, it would be for public mischief.
