Police are investigating the death of a woman who fell from a fifth-floor window of a Harlem housing development.
The New York Times reports Quanneisha Baskerville stopped at her estranged boyfriend’s home Saturday to drop off their three children, ages 4, 9 and 10, when his roommate called the police.
She was possibly violating a restraining order by being there. Baskerville had been facing assault charges after she was accused of kicking in the door of the boyfriend’s apartment and later punching him.
She was hanging from the window ledge before she fell. A witness tells the Times police told her to come inside, and she didn’t have “do this.”
Police are investigating the death. The woman lived near the father in the same complex.
