A 39-YEAR-OLD Ecuadorian threw himself out the window of his first floor home in Novelda on Sunday trying to flee the police. Local Police had received a call warning of a possible case of domestic violence at a residence on Calle Magallanes were a couple were having a heated discussion.
On arriving at the scene, they managed to access the house and found the man trying to escape out of the window.
He fell to the street from a height of three or four meters resulting in injuries to his lower half and had to be admitted to the trauma unit at Elda Hospital.
The girlfriend, aged 40 and also from Ecuador, had no injuries and declined to lodge a complaint against her sentimental partner.
However, as a preventative measure, the Guardia Civil have made a statement as to what happened before the Magistrates Court in Novelda.
