On Tuesday morning, the Manchester police has been informed that a man jumped from the second storey window of an apartment in the Ancoats area of the city. According to the witnesses, the man landed on a Hyundai i30, caved its roof in and smashed its windscreen. “Blood on the windows and a car with caved in roof. Something bad’s happened here,” one of the witnesses, Jonathan Ward wrote on Twitter.
“He was hitting my mum in the face, my dad was trying to get him off. We are all in shock,” Ben told the police, who was in the car with his parents. The man fled down Cross Keys Street, where he smashed the rear window of a BMW and tried to drag a woman from inside the car.
The brother of a 34-year-old worker at Salford Royal Hospital said that his sister had been left “traumatised” after being attacked by the man. “He tried to drag her from the car, she was screaming and trying to stop him. He was smearing blood everywhere,” he said.
On the other hand, a woman was found dead at Shush Apartments, on Swan Street. The 37-year-old man has been arrested subsequently on suspicion of murder. The Greater Manchester Police superintendent Chris Hill, said: “We are currently working to establish the exact circumstances surrounding what has happened this morning and the woman’s death.”
“Her death is currently being treated as suspicious and we have a team of officers working at the scene,” he continued. “We are in the very early stages of our investigation however I would urge anyone with any information to please get in touch,” he added.
