Woman Thrown Off Balcony In Alleged Domestic Violence Incident

A man has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly throwing a woman from a first-floor balcony in inner Sydney during a domestic incident.

Police were called to a unit block in Redfern about 9.25pm on Sunday and found the woman, aged in her 30s. She was taken to hospital in a stable condition with fractures.

They arrested a 45-year-old man in a unit at the block, later charging him with causing grievous bodily harm to a person with intent to murder.

In an unrelated incident, a 34-year-old man was arrested after he began bashing a police car parked at the unit block with a cricket bat. He is expected to be charged with malicious damage.
