Man Pushes Woman Off Balcony

A man in his thirties pushed a woman in her twenties off a balcony in upper Breiðholt late Monday evening, RÚV reports. The woman was rushed to a hospital and the man was taken into custody by police, where he remains. The woman is badly injured but reportedly in stable condition.

Police responded to a call about a woman who had fallen from a balcony on the second floor of a building in Breiðholt last Monday. However, it was quickly revealed that she had been pushed by the unnamed man, who was promptly captured at the scene by police. 

The man is thought to have violated his parole with the heinous act and has been sentenced to police custody for at least 30 days, while the matter is investigated by the police.
