Teenage girl rescued in window drama at Rochester High Street
A woman was rescued after apparently threatening to jump out of a window at a bed and breakfast.
The teenager, who has not been named, was seen trying to get out of a window at the Magee’s bed and breakfast in Rochester High Street, close to Star Hill, shortly before 5pm on Thursday.
The police were called to the guest house, which has a cafe below and is formerly Andy Snacks, and tried to talk the woman down.
Stephen Barker, who owns a shop nearby, wrote on Facebook: “A 19-year-old female was on top of Magees Bed and Breakfast and caused disruption for 10 minutes - but was pulled back through a window before any tragedy.”
A police spokesman said: “Officers were called to a guest house in Rochester High Street at 4.42pm to reports of concern for the welfare of a 19-year-old woman at the address.
“Patrols attended and detained the woman, who was taken to hospital for assessment.”
