A British woman vacationing in India jumped off a three-story balcony to avoid a sexual assault by the hotel’s owner, local police reported on Tuesday. The woman, who is in her 30s, was vacationing in Agra, near the Taj Mahal, when a hotel owner allegedly responded to her wakeup call by offering to give her a massage. She told police the hotel owner wouldn’t leave, so she went out on the balcony, locked the door, and then jumped the three stories to the ground. Despite injuring her leg, she managed to flee. Police arrested the hotel owner, who said he had gone up to the room because the woman was not responding to the intercom wakeup call.
