A woman has been injured after jumping from a window to escape an alleged domestic violence attack in Sydney's southwest.
Emergency crews were called to an address in Bankstown at 12pm yesterday after reports a woman had jumped from a second-storey window after allegedly being assaulted.
Police allege a 29-year-old man known to the woman, assaulted and choked her, causing her to lose consciousness.
He then allegedly locked the 34-year-old in a bedroom, before she managed to climb out a window and drop to the ground outside to call for help.
When police arrived, they found the woman with injuries.
The man had fled the scene before officers arrived.
The woman was taken to hospital where she is undergoing treatment for a fractured vertebrae, bruising and swelling.
An investigation was launched, and police arrested the man a short time later.
He has been charged with multiple offences and was refused bail to appear at Campbelltown Local Court today.
