Woman Jumps From Balcony to Escape Florida Man
Florida man Allen Brucker, of Ponte Vedra, is in the Flagler County Jail after he violated a no-contact order and attacked a woman, causing her to jump off a 2nd-floor balcony to escape.
According to the arrest affidavit, Brucker traveled with a female acquaintance to spend the Christmas weekend in Palm Coast. In the early hours of Monday morning, things went south, and Brucker began to punch and strangle the woman. The victim fought him off, ran out to the second-floor balcony, and began to yell for help.
Brucker broke down the door to the balcony, and the victim leaped from the balcony into the bushes below to escape Brucker. Brucker then came downstairs and caught the victim. He then dragged her across the street when a witness intervened and yelled at Brucker to let go of the victim. Brucker let the victim go and fled in a white truck. The witness helped the victim call 911 for help.
