Woman found dead in Manchester flat after ’man covered in blood jumped out of window and attacked people in the street’

A WOMAN'S body has been discovered inside a flat where a blood-soaked man leapt from a second floor window and allegedly attacked people below.

Cops were called to Swan Street in Manchester's city centre this morning after reports that a man was "behaving erratically" and a "number of people had been assaulted".

Witnesses reported seeing a man jump from the window onto a family's car before allegedly assaulting "a number of people".

After police arrived at the flat they found the woman's body.

A 37-year-old man was arrested nearby on suspicion of murder. He remains in custody for questioning.

Superintendent Chris Hill, of GMP’s City of Manchester team, said: “We are currently working to establish the exact circumstances surrounding what has happened this morning and the woman’s death.

“Her death is currently being treated as suspicious and we have a team of officers working at the scene.

“We are in the very early stages of our investigation however I would urge anyone with any information to please get in touch.”

Onlookers told Manchester Evening News how a man was pinned to the ground by officers after he attacked the family and passerbys.
