Agra: A British female tourist was on Tuesday admitted in a hospital here in a serious condition after jumping out of her hotel window to escape a sexual assault, police said.

Jessica, 25, told police that she was staying in the first floor of a hotel in Agra's cantonment area when "some person" tried to molest her.

The man who allegedly tried to molest her has been identified as the hotel owner and has been arrested.

Some local residents saw her jumping out of the window and took her to a hospital where she narrated her ordeal to the police, CNN-IBN reported.

The incident comes just a few days after a Swiss tourist was allegedly gangraped in front of her husband on the outskirts of village Jhadia in the Datia district, Madhya Pradesh.

The woman had camped in a forested area when seven men attacked the couple, beat up the man, stole their belongings and raped the woman.
