Prostitute leaps to her death while fleeing cops
A prostitute jumped to her death from a third-floor window atop a Queens building while trying to escape arrest during an NYPD sting operation, cops said Sunday.
The 38-year-old woman was working in an apartment above a massage parlor on 40th Road near Main Street in Flushing Saturday night, when she agreed to perform a sex act for pay on an undercover officer, cop sources said.
According to NY Daily News,she bolted out a window when the cop’s backup tried to enter the apartment and arrest her, cops said.
Other officers posted outside watched as she plummeted to the sidewalk below at about 9:30 p.m., cops said.
Medics rushed her to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Queens with severe head and body trauma, where she died Sunday.
Her name has not been released, and the city medical examiner will determine her cause of death.
