Teen leaped from seventh floor with police in pursuit

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 15-year-old boy who jumped from a seventh-story balcony while being pursued by police was in serious condition at Children's Hospital Thursday night.

        Cincinnati District One officers responded to a call at 3 p.m. at Uptown Towers on West Ninth Street downtown from a mother reporting that her daughter was being menaced by an ex-boyfriend. The boyfriend's name is not being released because he is a juvenile, said Lt. Kurt Byrd.

        When officers arrived, the juvenile fled through the apartment and jumped from the seventh-floor balcony, falling onto concrete beneath the balcony. The boy suffered a broken leg, and possible back and internal injuries, Lt. Byrd said.
