A SIXTY-YEAR-OLD Spanish man has been arrested for allegedly throwing his ex-partner from a fifth floor balcony.
Police were called to a block of flats in Granollers, Barcelona, at 5am to investigate sounds of a fight that neighbours had reported.
Upon arrival at the building, the officers found an injured woman on the floor in a central patio who said she had been pushed from the fifth floor.
After calling an ambulance, officers went up to the flat and eventually broke down the door to gain access.
The man had a restriction order banning him from approaching the victim, and this is apparently not the first violent episode that has been registered between the two.
