A Windsor woman is in hospital after a police officer stopped her from jumping off a building.

Around 11am Saturday, officers were called to a parking garage on Wyandotte St. E. near Ouellette Ave.

Windsor Police say an officer spoke with a woman on the third level of the garage, who was attempting to jump over the edge.  At one point, the officer had to chase the women and physically stop her from climbing over the ledge.

She was then arrested and taken to hospital by ambulance.
