A FOREIGN woman, believed to be employed as a maid, sustained injuries in a fall following an alleged attempt to escape from a first floor flat in the Mentiri area.
According to the Royal Brunei Police Force, authorities were alerted yesterday to the incident at a flat in Kg Pengkalan Sibabau following a distress call received at around 2.35pm from the public.
The Indonesian woman, 44, it was stated, had been living with her employer for around four months and was alone at the flat when the incident happened.
A photo of the incident made its way around the social media showing the woman on the ground surrounded by emergency medical staff.
The photo also showed the woman lying on a suitcase and bag that reportedly belong to her, leading authorities to suspect that she had planned to run away.
The woman is currently being treated for a broken right leg and wounds to her forehead. The case is currently under investigation.
