Tulsa police in Oklahoma have charged Richard Lee Wallace Jr. with aggravated assault and battery, following an incident in which he reportedly threw an unconscious woman off a fourth-floor balcony at an apartment complex.
The woman was injured badly in the fall and firefighters found her in the courtyard with multiple broken bones and a broken femur and ankle.
On March 18th, 2020, around 4:30 a.m., officers were called to the scene after surveillance footage showed Wallace leaving the apartment with the woman wrapped in a blanket that appeared to be unconscious.
He allegedly took her to a common area and then threw her over the balcony before refusing to come out of the apartment. After a brief confrontation with the police, he finally opened the door and complied.
At this time, there has been no update on the woman’s condition and Wallace is currently being held at the Tulsa County Jail on a $10,000 bond. He is due to appear in court on Friday and does not yet have an attorney of record.
