LUCKNOW, India —

Police say that a British woman has been injured after she jumped from the balcony of her hotel room in the tourist city of Agra in order to escape a sexual assault.

Police official Manish Sisodia says woman jumped out of her third floor room early Tuesday after a man forced his way into her room. She fractured her leg. No other details were available.

The attack comes days after a Swiss tourist was gang-raped in central India. Six men have been arrested in that attack.

India has seen anger and public protests against rapes and sexual attacks on women since the fatal gang-rape of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi in December.
