Albuquerque police said a woman jumped off a balcony to escape an abusive boyfriend.
Raynaldo Duarte was in court on Saturday and charged with domestic violence and false imprisonment.
A criminal complaint states he and the woman argued about a phone contact.
That is when Duarte reportedly tried to suffocate the woman. She ended up escaping to their apartment balcony and jumped off to a neighbor’s apartment.
The woman was taken to the emergency room for her injuries.
